Migration in European History

Migration in European History

Barbara Schmitter Heisler of Gettysburg College reviews Migration in European History by Klaus Bade.  Klaus Bade describes that since the fall of the Iron Curtain, migration has become a major cause for concern in many European countries, but migrations to, from and within Europe are nothing new. The book includes a history of migration to, from and within Europe over a range of eras, countries and migration types, and examines the driving forces and currents of migration and their effects on the cultures of both migrants and host populations, including migration policies.  The book focuses on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, particularly the period from the Second World War to the present, illuminating concerns about migration in Europe today.  Overall, it act as a corrective to the alarmist reactions of host populations in twenty-first century Europe.
