Book Description

Originally published in 1982, this book examines the spatial patterns and underlying processes involved in human migration as well as its role as an agent in the development of the spatial organization of society. Geographers have developed several methodologies in the study of migration and this volume integrates them in such a way that is useful for undergraduates studying any one branch of human geography.
