Rate this:
A unlquely comprehensive look at 200 years of world mass migration by two economists who show how economie history can inform contemporary debate. World mass migration began in the early nineteenth century, when advances in transportation technology and industrial revolutions at home enabled increasing numbers of people to set off for other parts of the globe in search of a better life. Two centuries later, there is no distant Asian, African, or Latin American village that is not within reach of some high-wage OECD labour market. This book is the first comprehensive economic assessment of world mass migration taking a long-run historical perspective, including north-north, south-south, and south-north migrations.
