Description

Since the fall of the Iron Curtain, migration has become a major cause for concern in many European countries, but migrations to, from and within Europe are nothing new, as Klaus Bade reminds us in this timely history.

  • A history of migration to, from and within Europe over a range of eras, countries and migration types.
  • Examines the driving forces and currents of migration, their effects on the cultures of both migrants and host populations, including migration policies.
  • Focuses on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, particularly the period from the Second World War to the present.
  • Illuminates concerns about migration in Europe today.
  • Acts as a corrective to the alarmist reactions of host populations in twenty-first century Europe.
