About the Author

After all is said and done, the history of the late 20th and early 21st century cannot be fully understood and accounted for without problematizing and addressing the phenomenon of migration within countries, within continents, and across regions of the world. Migration has been an integral part of human history from time immemorial, but the era of neoliberal globalization has escalated the desire and process to a very high level owing to among other things, the problem of uneven development and institutional capacity. Using an interdisciplinary perspective, the editors and authors of this book provide an elaborate analysis of various theoretical perspectives, contextual and mediating explanatory factors to explain the issue of migration within and out of the African continent. The book greatly educates the reader by being deliberately nuanced in analysis in order to avoid the problem of broad and misleading generalizations that ignore mediating/contextual factors and social and historical specificities. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in having a focused understanding of how Africa fits into the extensive literature on contemporary migration.

-- Samuel Zalanga, Bethel University

This book is an assemblage of ‘disparate voices’ on African migration. The contributors remarkably respond to our search for better understanding of the link between contemporary globalization and the conditions of the global common.

-- Victor Adetula, The Nordic Africa Institute --This text refers to the paperback edition.
