Across the globe, from the dawn of civilization, the journey of human populations -- across towns, borders, and continents -- has been a definitive and enduring feature of humanity. The Encyclopedia Of Global Human Migration provides a complete exploration of the prominent themes, events, and theoretical underpinnings of the movements of human populations from prehistory to the present day. The first scholarly reference work on the subject, the Encyclopedia considers migration on an international, regional, national, ethnic, and sub-national basis. It includes thematic interpretations and theories of migration, as well as the significant contemporary scientific discoveries and scholarly interpretations that have reshaped the way historians and social scientists analyze and map the past. Under the general editorship of Immanuel Ness, the Encyclopedia brings together an editorial board and contributors, which span not only the globe but also the fields of history, sociology, anthropology, political economy, geography, linguistics, genetics, and more. The Encyclopedia Of Global Human Migration offers important insights into our understanding of the migratory patterns of human populations that continue to shape the modern world, and is essential for scholars and students across the humanities, social and physical sciences. The online platform further provides interactive cross-referencing links and powerful searching and browsing capabilities within the work and across Wiley-Blackwell's comprehensive online reference collection.
