'The number of international migrants doubled to 215 million in the quarter-century to 2010, while remittances to developing countries more than quadrupled to over $300 billion. There were fears that the 2008-09 global recession would result in the widespread return of migrants and declining remittances to developing countries. These fears were not realized, and this important book explains why. Countries that sent migrants to many countries had the fewest returns and the smallest drops in remittances, and freer-migration corridors reacted most quickly to changing economic conditions, as Poles left Ireland within the EU. The contributors to this book include leading experts on migration and its effects in developing countries, making the book of lasting value.' --Philip L. Martin, Professor and Chair, Comparative Immigration & Integration Program, Department of Agricultural Economics, University of California, Davis
