The Turbulence of Migration Globalization, Deterritorialization and Hybridity


The Turbulence of Migration Globalization, Deterritorialization and Hybridity by Nikos Papastergiadis

This important book traces the impact of the movement of people, ideas and capital across the globe.


a The Turbulence of Migration is an exciting and comprehensive rendition of the role and impact of migration in contemporary societies. Drawing on a range of theories and disciplines, it unpacks existing accounts of migration processes and suggests new ways of looking at the range of phenomena that make up the endless motion of migration that shapes our everyday experiences. Nikos Papastergiadis reveals himself to be one of the most important scholars in this field.a John Solomos, South Bank University, London a This volume is important for two reasons. First, it challenges the social sciences to adopt a more functional and dynamic view of culture and the social such that difference and culture are incorporated outside of traditional bounded unit classifications. Second, the author has presented a coherent argument for understanding migration as a process that stems from global turbulence in politics, economics and social relations. This volume would make an excellent addition to upper--year undergraduate and gradute papers in disciplines such as sociology, anthropology and geography.a David Timothy Duval, Sociological Research Online a The volumea s greatest strength is its review and critique of cultural theorists ... It is a provocative volume that attempts to shift the paradigms through which traditional social science views migration by introducing new strands of scholarship.a International Migration a Papastergiadis spells out the consequences for multiculturalist policy and theory ... [His] intentions are grand: to revolutionize migration theory and to place post--colonial theory at the heart of a new social science of modernity.a Race and Class a Impressive in its multidiscipinary scope, this book draws together a wide range of work and makes revealing juxtapositions between different fields.a Progress in Human Geography a The Turbulence of Migration is an impressive tour de force ... an exceptionally valuable book for those who want a sophisticated, intelligent and critical primer in postmodern theories of globalization, migration and cultural interaction.a The UTS Review
