Editorial Reviews

Review

'The Turbulence of Migration is an exciting and comprehensive rendition of the role and impact of migration in contemporary societies. Drawing on a range of theories and disciplines, it unpacks existing accounts of migration processes and suggests new ways of looking at the range of phenomena that make up the "endless motion" of migration that shapes our everyday experiences. Nikos Papastergiadis reveals himself to be one of the most important scholars in this field.' John Solomos, South Bank University, London

'This volume is important for two reasons. First, it challenges the social sciences to adopt a more functional and dynamic view of culture and the "social" such that difference and culture are incorporated outside of traditional bounded unit classifications. Second, the author has presented a coherent argument for understanding migration as a process that stems from global turbulence in politics, economics and social relations. This volume would make an excellent addition to upper-year undergraduate and gradute papers in disciplines such as sociology, anthropology and geography.' David Timothy Duval, Sociological Research Online

'The volume's greatest strength is its review and critique of cultural theorists ... It is a provocative volume that attempts to shift the paradigms through which traditional social science views migration by introducing new strands of scholarship.' International Migration

'Papastergiadis spells out the consequences for multiculturalist policy and theory ... [His] intentions are grand: to revolutionize migration theory and to place post-colonial theory at the heart of a new social science of modernity.' Race and Class

'Impressive in its multidiscipinary scope, this book draws together a wide range of work and makes revealing juxtapositions between different fields.' Progress in Human Geography

'The Turbulence of Migration is an impressive tour de force ... an exceptionally valuable book for those who want a sophisticated, intelligent and critical primer in postmodern theories of globalization, migration and cultural interaction.' The UTS Review

Format: Paperback
As a sort of disclaimer, let me say that this work proved really useful for theoretical discussions/criticisms on multiculturalism and the formation of identity. While the arguments are a little dated - the work was first published in 2000, and a good amount of work done in anthropology and sociology since then seems to have been informed by the criticisms that Papastergiadis gives - the author gives and criticizes multiple theoretically-informed viewpoints through which these concepts can be understood.

That being said, I'm a student interested in migration, and only the first three chapters (one could argue for four, but with some difficulty) explicitly deal with migration. The other six (five) chapters are purely theoretical, and while informative, could (and do) apply to anthropology/sociology generally, and are not explicitly about migrants or migration. While one can grasp the general gist of how his argument applies to migration, I was disappointed that he leaves the reader to draw their own connections between the theories he presents and the topic the title of the work addresses.

My subject line says it all. The best part of the book is the ability of the author to convey sophisticated theories into readable and interesting way. This is really rare especially on the topic which has been made really flaky and abstract by scholars from postmodern cultural studies.
