"This latest edition of one of the essential texts in migration studies offers updated and expanded discussions of the state of the literature in the field’s constituent disciplines. The introductory and concluding chapters are testament to the rapid evolution of migration studies and take seriously the challenge posed by critical migration studies to the field’s mainstream. This is a must-read and will be an indispensable reference book for both new and established scholars of migration."
Antje Ellermann, Professor, The University of British Columbia
"This volume is a heroic and unique attempt to bridge disciplinary and conceptual boundaries in migration studies. Although different approaches and theories enrich the field, we need more agreement on the nature of the phenomenon we are trying to understand. ‘Talking across disciplines’ makes a persuasive case for structured comparisons, in time, space and scale and as such is a crucial intervention that helps us to accumulate knowledge in a more systematic, efficient and encompassing way."
Leo Lucassen, Director of the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam, Professor in Global Labour and Migration History, Leiden University
"Understanding migration requires insight into movement across geographies, economic drivers and impacts, change over time, social and cultural integration, as well as law and states’ power to enforce or open borders. Brettell and Hollifield bring together field experts and cogent syntheses to celebrate interdisciplinarity, highlighting how key questions, methods, and theoretical tool-kits can be complementary or stand apart. They seek to end such distances, and do a truly admirable job. Anyone interested in migration, whether a new or seasoned scholar, will learn from this impressive book."
Irene Bloemraad, Faculty Director, University of California Berkeley
"Now in its 4th edition, Migration Theory: Talking Across Disciplines has established itself has the indispensable guide to understanding how various disciplines approach the movement of people. While achieving a seamless unified theory across history, anthropology, sociology, demography, economics, political science, geography, and legal studies might be asking too much, especially given the significant range of approaches even within these disciplines, the goal is a laudable one. Brettell and Hollified provide scholars at all levels well-crafted summaries of scholarship in these various disciplines. In a field of study as broad as migration, this is a valuable resource when contemplating the "cutting edge" of current research, which will influence future research. Migration Theory is essential for scholars seeking to find their comparative advantage in the study of migration."
Leo Chavez, Professor of Anthropology, University of California, Irvine»
