9781849711500: The Atlas of Human Migration: Global Patterns of People on the Move (The Earthscan Atlas Series)

Migration has provided millions with an escape route from poverty or oppression, ensuring the survival, even prosperity, of individuals and their families. New currents of human migration, triggered by ethnic cleansing or climate change or economic need, are appearing all the time and immigration has become one of today's most contested issues. This compelling new atlas maps contemporary migration against its crucial economic, social, cultural and demographic contexts. Drawing on data from one of the largest concentrations of migration research, the atlas traces the story of migration from its historical roots through the economic and conflict imperatives of the last 50 years to the causes and effects of flight today. Issues covered include: ' Refugees and asylum seekers ' Diasporas ' Remittances ' The 'brain drain' ' Trafficking ' Student, retirement and return migration

About the Author :

Russell King is Professor of Geography at the University of Sussex, and Director of the Sussex Centre for Migration Research. He has been researching migration in its various forms around the world for over 30 years; his main research projects have been on Europe and the Mediterranean, including studies on Italian return migration, Irish migration, British retirement migration to Southern Europe, international student migration, migration and development in Albania, and Greek and Cypriot diasporas. He is the editor of the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies. Richard Black is Professor of Human Geography at the University of Sussex, and Head of the School of Global Studies. His recent research has focused on the relationship between migration and poverty, but he has also conducted research on refugees, the integration of economic migrants from Eastern Europe in the UK, and the relationship between migration and climate change. His main geographical focus is Sub-Saharan Africa, but he has also carried out field research in Portugal, Greece and the Western Balkans. During 1994-2009 he was co-editor of the Journal of Refugee Studies. Michael Collyer is Lecturer in Human Geography and Migration Studies at the University of Sussex. Whilst based at Sussex he has held a Nuffield Career Development Fellowship and a Marie Curie International Fellowship, with visiting appointments at universities in Morocco, Egypt and Sri Lanka.

Anthony Fielding is Research Professor in Human Geography at the University of Sussex, and has been researching migration for over 40 years. His main geographical focus is on Europe and East Asia, and he has been a visiting professor at Riksumeikan and Kyoto universities in Japan. His main research projects have been on counter-urbanization in Western Europe; the relationships between social and geographical mobility; theorizing new immigration trends in Southern Europe and East Asia; and, currently, the analysis of internal and international migration flows in China, Korea and Japan. Ronald Skeldon is Professorial Fellow in the Department of Geography at the University of Sussex, and a Senior Research Fellow at the Department for International Development (DfID) in London. His research focuses on migration and development, and on both internal and international migrations. He has particular interests in the measurement of migration and in migration policy, and has acted as consultant to many international organizations. After early field research in Latin America, he has specialized in migration in Asia and the Pacific Region.

Introduction

The standard dictionary definition of human migration, which usually runs along the lines of "the movement of people from one place or country to settle in another," suggests little of the depth of meaning or the scale of the phenomenon, both in the contemporary world and throughout history. The current preoccupation with controlling immigration in the so-called developed world tends to overlook the fundamental benefits that migration has brought to many places through the ages, contributing to both the economic development and the special character of many cities and even entire countries. This book tells this epic story of civilizations and their movement -- of ideas and cultures that travel, and of people leaving home in search of a different and better way of life. Like all good books that seek to inform and educate, it brilliantly illuminates the "grand narrative" -- of the constant thread of migration running through the weave of human history -- using the fascinating detail of local case studies carefully selected from around the world.
