Summary "This textbook describes and explains the complex reality of contemporary internal and international migrations in East and Southeast Asia. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, Anthony J. Fielding combines theoretical debate and detailed empirical analysis to provide students with an understanding of the causes and consequences of the many types of contemporary migration flows in the region. Written by an experienced scholar and teacher of migration studies, this is an essential text for courses on Asian migrations and mobility, and important reading for courses on international migration and Asian societies more generally"-- Provided by publisher
