Willem Maas, Associate Professor of Political Science, Public & International Affairs, Social & Political Thought, and Socio-Legal Studies at Glendon College, York University, reviews European Migration: What Do We Know? The book studies and evaluates migration in Europe since World War II in terms of policy shifts and by measuring immigrant adjustment in economic terms, such as wages, unemployment, and occupational choice. The book also looks at economic consequences of immigration for the host country and concludes that it is beneficial to the receiving country. While the focus is on Europe, there are also chapters devoted to the United States, New Zealand, and Canada.
