The personal stories of migrant nurses that fill this book contrast the nightmarish existences of some with the successes of by: Global Migration and the World Economy, the latest and most exhaustive joint study of this duo, builds on their prior work together and independently, but also breaks important new ground. For instance, most of this new book is not duplicated either in their Age of Mass Migration () or in Williamson and Kevin O’Rourke’s collaboration, Globalization and History (). ‘This is a truly global book about migration and globalisation. Covering forced and voluntary migration, internal and international movements, and Asia, Latin America, and Africa, this comprehensive reference will certainly become a go-to book for scholars, lawyers, and policymakers alike.’ – Peggy Levitt, author of Artifacts and Allegiances: How Museums Put the Nation and the World on.

This mass migration marked a profound shift in the distribution of global population and economic activity. In this book, Timothy J. Hatton and Jeffrey G. Williamson describe the migration and analyze its causes and effects. Their study offers a comprehensive treatment of a vital period in the modern economic development of the Western world. Bimal Ghosh’s new book, jointly sponsored by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and The Hague Process on Refugees and Migration (THP), provides a detailed analysis of the economic decline and its links to joblessness and incomes, poverty and inequality, and changes in the labour force worldwide. It then spells out how these developments and governments’. In Global Migration and the World Economy, Timothy Hatton and Jeffrey Williamson, eminent economists and economic historians, perform the laudable service of reviewing world migration, nearly in its totality, over the past two hundred years. They seek to distill lessons from history that may shed lightinthe current debate about migration policy. Servants of Globalization offers a groundbreaking study of migrant Filipino domestic workers who leave their own families behind to do the caretaking work of the global economy. Since its initial publication, the book has informed countless students and scholars and set the research agenda on labor migration and transnational families.
