Among many books on immigration, Professor Eugene Tartakovsky's volume stands out as a solid reference book in a few ways. Its focus is panoramic, with 19 chapters covering migrants' motivations, attitudes toward migrants, their identity, acculturation, and psychological adjustment. It is an evidence-based volume, with the 42 experts who present their research findings. Not least of all, it is decidedly global, with it contributors and topics spanning many nations.
--Harold Takooshian, PhD, Past-President, Division of International Psychology, American Psychological Association.
This collected volume is a significant addition to immigration literature. Two aspects of the book are especially commendable: one is the presentation of empirical research in simple and practical terms, and the other is the exceptionally comprehensive view of immigration. Readers with different interests may find illuminating and relevant materials in this volume and students may gain an all-embracing perspective on state-of-the-art immigration research worldwide.
Professor Julia Mirsky, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel
