Praise for the first edition: "By far the best general book on its subject.... Moving Europeans will remain a standard reference for some time to come." –Charles Tilly "Moch has reconceived the social history of Europe." —David Levine Moving Europeans tells the story of the vast movements of people throughout Europe and examines the links between human mobility and the fundamental changes that transformed European life. This update of a classic text describes the Western European migration from the pre-industrial era to the year 2000. For this new edition, Leslie Page Moch reconsiders the 20th century in light of fundamental changes in labor, years of conflict, and the new migrations following the end of colonial empires, the fall of communism, and globalization. This new edition also features a greatly expanded and up-to-date bibliography.

From a Multiethnic Empire to a Nation of Nations

Austro-Hungarian Migrants in the US, 1870–1940

A Transatlantic Experience The book describes the transatlantic experience of migrants from Imperial Austria and the Kingdom of Hungary who arrived in the US from the middle of the nineteenth century up to the outbreak of WWI. Traditional assumptions of mass migration - such as the rapid and easy Americanization of newly arriving Europeans, as well as their strong desire of retaining as much of native culture as possible - have been challenged by recent historical studies. Multiethnic Groups The socio-economic, demographic, and cultural analyses presented in this book offer a much more differentiated picture of the migrants who struggled for new living space amidst hostile industrial environments. This study breaks new ground by examining migration broadly between the Habsburg Monarchy and North America and return migration to Central Europe, including the study of a variety of ethnic and religious groups who originated in different regions. This book offers a scientific investigation of the circumstances under which Austro-Hungarians migrated to the United States in order to find new opportunities while trying to keep up their traditional values.

The papers presented in this volume form a homogeneous body of knowledge with many facets. The topics researched present a wide variety. . . This volume offers solid research on a variety of issues in the study of migration. Theodore P. Lianos, South-Eastern Europe Journal of Economics The enlargement of the European Union has had an enormous impact on migration within Europe. This book addresses the form of these effects, outlining the social, political and economic problems created by the free movement of people within the European Union. The eminent European contributors to this book explore the ways in which nation states and the EU seek to promote the benefits of migration but at the same time counter threats arising from dislocation. The advantages and costs of migration are considered, as is the crucial problem of who gains and loses from migration. Underpinning the analysis are studies on retirement migrants in Turkey and migrant workers in countries including Austria, Finland, Norway, Portugal, Spain, and the UK, which highlight the impact of immigration in the host states, the motivation for migration within the EU as well as the issues of societal integration of migrants and the need for control as a consequence of growing levels of migration. This timely and relevant study will strongly appeal to scholars and researchers in a wide range of fields including European studies, migration studies, social policy, human geography, international relations and sociology.

Gated Communities?

Regulating Migration in Early Modern Cities

Author: Dr Anne Winter,Professor Bert De Munck

Publisher: Ashgate Publishing, Ltd.

ISBN: 1409482871

Category: History

Page: 308

View: 603

Contrary to earlier views of preindustrial Europe as an essentially sedentary society, research over the past decades has amply demonstrated that migration was a pervasive characteristic of early modern Europe. In this volume, the theme of urban migration is explored through a series of historical contexts, journeying from sixteenth-century Antwerp, Ulm, Lille and Valenciennes, through seventeenth-century Berlin, Milan and Rome, to eighteenth-century Strasbourg, Trieste, Paris and London. Each chapter demonstrates how the presence of diverse and often temporary groups of migrants was a core feature of everyday urban life, which left important marks on the demographic, economic, social, political, and cultural characteristics of individual cities. The collection focuses on the interventions by urban authorities and institutions in a wide-ranging set of domains, as they sought to stimulate, channel and control the newcomers' movements and activities within the cities and across the cities' borders. While striving for a broad geographical and chronological coverage in a comparative perspective, the volume aims to enhance our insight into the different factors that shaped urban migration policies in different European settings west of the Elbe. By laying bare the complex interactions of actors, interests, conflicts, and negotiations involved in the regulation of migration, the case studies shed light on the interrelations between burghership, guilds, relief arrangements, and police in the incorporation of newcomers and in shaping the shifting boundaries between wanted and unwanted migrants. By relating to a common analytical framework, presented in the introductory chapter, they engage in a comparative discussion that allows for the formulation of general insights and the identification of long term transformations that transcend the time and place specificities of the case studies in question. The introduction and final chapters connect insights derived from the individual case-study chapters to present wide ranging conclusions that resonate with both historical and present-day debates on migration.

In diesem Band sind drei Vorträge versammelt, die aus einer historisch-soziologischen Perspektive versuchen, die jüngste Revitalisierung und Politisierung von Religion in Form von religiösem Nationalismus, ethnischer Mobilisierung und politischem Fundamentalismus und ihre Folgen für die Konfliktlagen und Entwicklungsdynamiken gegenwärtiger Welt- und Europapolitik erklärend zu interpretieren und kritisch zu reflektieren. Der Autor entwirft die Leitidee eines sich erweiternden und zugleich kosmopolitischen Europas, das den analysierten Konfliktdynamiken durch Strategien religiös-politischer Pluralisierung entgegenwirkt.

Pioneers of European Integration contributes greatly to European sociology by offering unique quantitative data on the so far uncharted group of intra-EU movers. Theresa Kuhn, European Sociological Review Free movement has become a defining feature of European society. This important study answers the question who are these free movers? Using both quantitative and qualitative research evidence, it brings new perspectives to the sociology of European migration and integration, broadening the analysis from traditional labour migrants to various new kinds of spatial and social mobility in the continent. Russell King, University of Sussex and Sussex Centre for Migration Research, UK The free movement of EU citizens is the most visible sociological consequence of the remarkable process of European integration that has transformed the continent since the Second World War. Pioneers of European Integration offers the first systematic analysis of the small but symbolically potent number of Europeans who have chosen to live and work as foreigners in another member state of the EU. Based on an original survey of 5000 people moving to and from the EU s five largest countries, the book documents the demographic profile, migration choices, cultural adaptation, social mobility, political participation and media use of these pioneers of a transnational Europe, as well as opening a window to the new waves of intra-EU East West migrations. Students and scholars of sociology, political science, human geography, anthropology, migration studies and European studies will all warmly welcome the volume. Civil servants and policymakers will also find this book an essential tool in coming to terms with the implications of EU citizenship and the transformative effects of this unprecedented European integration from below .

Die Frauensteiner Briefe

Aspekte der Auswanderung aus dem Herzogtum Nassau nach Australien im 19. Jahrhundert

Author: Kathrine M. Reynolds

Publisher: Peter Lang

ISBN: 9783034303422

Category: Australia

Page: 301

Dieses Buch beleuchtet die Auswanderung von nahezu 20% der Bev�lkerung des Dorfes Wiesbaden-Frauenstein (im heutigen Hessen) nach Australien in den Jahren 1852-54, ausgehend von den Briefen und Tageb�chern der Dorfbewohner ebenso wie von formalen Dokumenten und Aufzeichnungen. Die Frauensteiner Auswanderer wurden als sogenannte �Indentured Labourers� – von den Kolonialbeh�rden finanziell gef�rderte Kontraktarbeiter – f�r die aufkeimende Weinbauindustrie nach Australien gebracht, und ihre Geschichte verk�rpert einen wichtigen Beitrag zu Fragen der Migration und Migrationsgeschichte, aber auch zur fr�hen Geschichte Australiens. Die Stimmen einfacher Menschen, die im Schriftverkehr zwischen Europa und Australien – den �Frauensteiner Briefen� – zur Sprache kommen, geben neue Einblicke in den Migrationsprozess: Was bewegte diese Leute zum Auswandern? Wie dachten sie �ber die Auswanderung, und wie wurden sie davon ber�hrt? Der Frauensteiner Briefwechsel wurde gr��tenteils von den weiblichen Mitgliedern der Auswandererfamilien verfasst – von einfachen arbeitenden Frauen, deren Stimmen aus dieser Zeit sonst nur selten h�rbar werden. Die Briefe haben anderthalb Jahrhunderte als geh�tete Sch�tze �berdauert und er�ffnen nun den Blick auf die Lebenswelten ihrer Autorinnen. Der vorliegende Band zeigt, wie gerade von Frauen geschriebene Auswandererbriefe ein besseres Verst�ndnis von historischen Ereignissen im Allgemeinen und ihrer pers�nlichen Wahrnehmung im Speziellen erm�glichen.

Der Selbstmord Europas

Immigration, Identität, Islam

Category: Political Science

Page: 384

View: 9756

Sinkende Geburtenraten, unkontrollierte Masseneinwanderung und eine lange Tradition des verinnerlichten Misstrauens: Europa scheint unfähig zu sein, seine Interessen zu verteidigen. Douglas Murray, gefeierter Autor, sieht in seinem neuen Bestseller Europa gar an der Schwelle zum Freitod – zumindest scheinen sich seine politischen Führer für den Selbstmord entschieden zu haben. Doch warum haben die europäischen Regierungen einen Prozess angestoßen, wohl wissend, dass sie dessen Folgen weder absehen können noch im Griff haben? Warum laden sie Tausende von muslimischen Einwanderern ein, nach Europa zu kommen, wenn die Bevölkerung diese mit jedem Jahr stärker ablehnt? Sehen die Regierungen nicht, dass ihre Entscheidungen nicht nur die Bevölkerung ihrer Länder auseinandertreiben, sondern letztlich auch Europa zerreißen werden? Oder sind sie so sehr von ihrer Vision eines neuen europäischen Menschen, eines neuen Europas und der arroganten Überzeugung von deren Machbarkeit geblendet? Der Selbstmord Europas ist kein spontan entstandenes Pamphlet einer vagen Befindlichkeit. Akribisch hat Douglas Murray die Einwanderung aus Afrika und dem Nahen Osten nach Europa recherchiert und ihre Anfänge, ihre Entwicklung sowie die gesellschaftlichen Folgen über mehrere Jahrzehnte ebenso studiert wie ihre Einmündung in den alltäglich werdenden Terrorismus. Eine beeindruckende und erschütternde Analyse der Zeit, in der wir leben, sowie der Zustände, auf die wir zusteuern.

Broad Is My Native Land

Repertoires and Regimes of Migration in Russia’s Twentieth Century

Author: Lewis H. Siegelbaum,Leslie Page Moch

Category: History

Page: 416

Whether voluntary or coerced, hopeful or desperate, people moved in unprecedented numbers across Russia's vast territory during the twentieth century. Broad Is My Native Land is the first history of late imperial, Soviet, and post-Soviet Russia through the lens of migration. Lewis H. Siegelbaum and Leslie Page Moch tell the stories of Russians on the move, capturing the rich variety of their experiences by distinguishing among categories of migrants—settlers, seasonal workers, migrants to the city, career and military migrants, evacuees and refugees, deportees, and itinerants. So vast and diverse was Russian political space that in their journeys, migrants often crossed multiple cultural, linguistic, and administrative borders. By comparing the institutions and experiences of migration across the century and placing Russia in an international context, Siegelbaum and Moch have made a magisterial contribution to both the history of Russia and the study of global migration. The authors draw on three kinds of sources: letters to authorities (typically appeals for assistance); the myriad forms employed in communication about the provision of transportation, food, accommodation, and employment for migrants; and interviews with and memoirs by people who moved or were moved, often under the most harrowing of circumstances. Taken together, these sources reveal the complex relationship between the regimes of state control that sought to regulate internal movement and the tactical repertoires employed by the migrants themselves in their often successful attempts to manipulate, resist, and survive these official directives.

Mobility in transition

migration patterns after EU enlargement

Author: Birgit Glorius,Izabela Grabowska-Lusinska,Aimee Kuvik

This volume presents new research on post-accession migration from Central and Eastern Europe in the short period since the EU enlargements of 2004 and 2007. Explanations of post-accession migration patterns, trends and mechanisms delve into the complexities of these phenomena. New groups of migrants and types of migrations are identified -- such as young migrants, often students or graduates, without family obligations and without clear plans concerning their future life. Case studies on Poland, Romania, Hungary and Latvia as well as the United Kingdom and Germany being major destination countries divulge the multifaceted nature of transition, whether in the form of labour migration, short-term mobility (including among international students) or return migration. The volume insightfully points towards future migration trends and sets guidelines for further research.
