An Atlas of International Migration
Hans Zell Publishers, 1993 - Social Science - 233 pages
"...A fascinating work, as well as a sad commentary on man's inhumanity to man. For general reference & map collections."-- LIBRARY JOURNAL. "...much more than an atlas: It is a textbook, resource book & virtually an encyclopedia of migration...deserves to become a standard study."--SOCIETY OF UNIVERSITY CARTOGRAPHERS BULLETIN. The pursuit of greater gain & power...escape from conflict & persecution...expulsion & enslavement. These are the forces that lead to major international interactions, & cultural, economic, & political transformation. For the first time in any language, here is a unique visual guide to the voluntary & involuntary migration patterns of mankind--from the hunter gatherers to the march of Greco-Roman civilization across Western Europe to the current refugee crisis in Africa. Produced in a large format, this combination of maps & text covers global & regional interactions throughout Africa, Asia, the Middle East, North America, Europe, South & Central America, & the Caribbean. The Atlas can be used productively in courses on history, international relations & area studies as well as such topics as the Atlantic slave trade & European emigration to the Americas. The volume includes an extensive introduction, a glossary of terms, & an annotated bibliography on migration. Covering the world, it represents a meaningful yet novel way of exploring human development & studying contemporary issues such as illegal immigration & displaced persons.
