"This very useful and authoritative compendium explicates thirty-eight concepts central to analysis of international migration. It is accessible to undergraduate students and even can enrich graduate courses. It nicely complements books like The Age of Migration or Exceptional People. Concision is a virtue!"
- Mark J. Miller, University of Delaware
This book provides lucid and intuitive explanations of the most important migration concepts as used in classrooms, among policymakers, and in popular and academic discourse.

- Includes an easy to understand definition
- Provides real-world examples
- Gives suggestions for further reading
- Is carefully cross-referenced to other related concepts
