The Age of Asian Migration

Continuity, Diversity, and Susceptibility Volumes 1 & 2

Editor(s): Yuk Wah Chan, David Haines, Jonathan Lee, Heidi Fung, Grażyna Szymańska-Matusiewicz

Book Description

Asia has emerged as a vital region for migration, as it produces the most international and cross-border migrants and brings pivotal new insights to migration studies. These two volumes on “The Age of Asian Migration” revisit different forms and histories of migration in Asia and the varied diasporas formed by Asian migrants. They provide both updated data on Asian migration and suggest new ways of looking at global migration overall.
