"'Barry Chiswick was a brilliant pioneer on the economics of migration long before it caught the attention of mainstream economists. This collection of his best papers illustrates clearly why he has that favored reputation.' - Jeffrey G. Williamson, Harvard University, US 'A fine collection of outstanding articles documenting Barry Chiswick's role as the Jacob Mineer of migration economics. His contributions have marked the pace of research on migration for over two decades, provoking the right questions and guiding the field.' - Klaus Zimmermann, IZA-Institute for the Study of Labor (Bonn), University of Bonn and Journal of Population Economics 'International migration is an abiding and growing subject of interest. Its economic analysis grew in part as a result of the human capital model which transformed labor economics. The pioneering work of Barry Chiswick provides a great deal of understanding of the economics of immigration. The reader will be fascinated by the mixture of analysis and evocative text.' - Jacob Mincer, Columbia University, US 'The pre-eminent scholar of the economics of immigration, Barry Chiswick is a master of analytically sound and empirically grounded research. Moreover, his work is accessible to social scientists in all fields.' - June E. O'Neill, Baruch College, CUNY and formerly of the Congressional Budget Office, US 'Barry R. Chiswick pioneered the study of immigration through labor economics. No serious scholar of American immigration can overlook his many and varied contributions to this field. This volume collects many of the papers that have challenged social scientist to regard immigration as a serious policy issue.' - Teresa Sullivan, University of Texas at Austin and University of Texas System, US 'Barry Chiswick is a pioneer among economists in examining the economics of immigration. Beginning in the late 1970s he has produced a number of important studies of immigration and economics. But these pieces are by no means limited in value to economics. Historians (and social scientists generally) of recent immigration have welcomed his many insightful essays in helping them to understand immigration of the last three decades. This collection brings together many essays that should be read by scholars.' - David Reimers, New York University, US"
