People in Transit by Dirk Hoerder

Book Description

The demographic shockwaves of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in Europe produced tremendous change in the national economies and affected the political, social, and cultural development of these societies. Migration historians have begun to connect the various European migratory streams during this period with transcontinental migration to North America. This volume contains empirical studies on German in-migration, internal migration, and transatlantic emigration from the 1820s to the 1930s, placed in a comparative perspective of Polish, Swedish, and Irish migration to North America. Special emphasis is placed on the role of women in the process of migration. By looking specifically at postwar Germany, Klaus J. Bade underscores the relevance of this history in a concluding essay.

Migrations and Belongings by Dirk Hoerder Migrations and Belongings, Paperback (April 2014)

Migrations and Belongings traces burgeoning population flows across several continents from 1870 to 1945 and explains the variables involved and the processes of acculturation by which "belonging" takes shape. Migration, it shows, is both a critique of unsatisfactory conditions in one society and a contribution of human capital to another.

Cultures in Contact by Dirk Hoerder Cultures in Contact, Paperback (October 2010)

A broad, pioneering interpretation of the scope, patterns, and consequences of human migrations over the past ten centuries

What is Migration History? by Dirk Hoerder What is Migration History?, Paperback (May 2009)

The study of migration is and always has been an interdisciplinary field of study, vast and vibrant in nature. This book takes in its scope an overview of migrations through history, how classic theories have interpreted such movements, and contemporary topics and debates including transnational and transcultural lives, and access to citizenship.
