This edited collection focuses on global migration in its
inter-regional, international and transnational variants, and
argues that contemporary migration scholarship is significantly
advanced both within anthropology and beyond it when ethnography is
theoretically engaged to grapple with the social consequences and
asymmetries of twenty-first century capitalism s global modalities.
Drawn from settings across the globe, case studies explore the
nuanced formations of class and power within particular migration
flows while addressing the complex analytics of a contemporary
critical political economy of migration. Subjects include global
migrants as capitalists, entrepreneurs and "cosmopolitans," as well
as workers and immigrants who are subject to varying degrees of
precariousness under intensified competition for profits within
contemporary global economies. By re-addressing the question of the
relationship between changes in global capitalism and migration,
the book aims for a timely intervention into the debates on
migration which have come to be one of the most contentious
emotionally fraught issues in North America and Europe."
