Reviews

'The volume is a must for all scholars of migration. It answers many questions and it poses new ones. And this adds to its value, because it shows that political economy of labour migration is a field whose depth and width we just begin to grasp.' - Romana Careja, University of Cologne

'Overall the book comprehensively weds comparative political economy and migration studies from a range of different angles and empirical grounds, and duly ends the often silent co-existence of an 'age of migration' (Castles and Miller, 2009) and an age of economic globalization. As such, it is highly recommended for migration experts and political economy scholars alike.' - Regine Paul, Social and Policy Sciences, University of Bath, Journal of European Social Policy
