This collection brings together every article on immigration that I have ever used in my graduate and undergraduate labour economics courses (plus a number of others as well). Many of these are quite old and thus hard to locate, but are still the best on their topics. All aspects of immigration are covered, ranging from the determinants of individuals migration decisions, to the impacts of those decisions on the individual, to their effects on both sending and receiving countries. All in all, it is nice to see these "old friends" collected together in one convenient place.

In the age of globalization, the importance of migration for the industrialized countries has increased. Inflows of migrants have steadily risen in the 1980s and the early 1990s. Yet while the public debate about policy responses to these developments continues unabated, research findings of economists are often ignored. In this four-volume collection the editors have selected some of the most significant contributions on the economics of migration, which provide an overview of the present state of empirical migration research. Topics covered include the migration decision, the integration of immigrants into the labor market and society, their economic behavior, empirical and theoretical contributions to migration policy, and the effects of immigrants on the native population.
