Adler and Gielen developed this volume to add the voices of a prominent international group of cross-culturally oriented psychologists to the worldwide debate on migration. Contributors to the book analyze worldwide configurations of migration, fundamental psychosocial factors involved in immigration and emigration, and patterns of migration from and to 16 nations and regions around the globe. The richly varied contributions focus on immigration to the United States from areas as varied as Mexico, the Caribbean, and Ireland, migrations in Colombia, immigrant families in Germany, Poland, and Norway, and migration from and into Japan, South Africa, Egypt, Israel, Australia, and the Phillippines. Of particular interest to scholars, students, and other researchers involved with migration, ethnic groups, and international psychology.
