"This book is essential reading for anyone who wants to be literate in migration studies. Migration Theory provides a bird's-eye view of the field at large and detailed accounts of the contributions of its constitutive disciplines."
-Antje Ellermann, University of British Columbia

"This third edition builds on the considerable strengths of the earlier volumes by updating and expanding the disciplinary terrain covered. In mapping their field's research questions and theoretical orientations, contributors also pay attention to how methods, units of analysis, levels of explanation and broader intellectual trends in their discipline generate distinctive views on migration. Highly recommended for experts and students alike!"

-Irene Bloemraad, UC Berkeley

"The previous edition of Migration Theory: Talking Across Disciplines was an indispensable survey of the literature for students and scholars of migration. The substantial revisions and additions in this latest edition, which includes several new authors providing fresh disciplinary reviews that incorporate the most recent advances in migration theory, reinvigorates the collection and ensures its ongoing position in the field as a must-have resource for students and scholars alike."

-Mark Ellis, University of Washington
