Over the past decade there have been significant advances in the field of migration and ethnic studies, ranging in topic from ethnic conflict and discrimination to nationalism, citizenship, and integration policy. But many of these studies are oriented towards the United States, slighting, when not outright ignoring, the European perspective. This volume—the first in a set of four—will fill this research gap, gathering essays that have set a benchmark for research on and in Europe.

Review Quotes
Roger Waldinger, University of California, Los Angeles
“A collection of must-read, though sometimes hard-to-find, pieces that any scholar or student interested in immigration to Europe and its consequences will want to consult.”
John Mollenkopf, City University of New York

“The editors have selected from both the grounding classics and the best new work to show how migration is transforming the rich democracies.”

Aristide Zolberg, New School for Social Research

“A must not only for courses focused on Europe, but also a most useful tool for shedding new light on North American migration by casting it in an often neglected comparative context.”
