Migration and mobility in the modern age : refugees, travelers, and traffickers in Europe and Eurasia

Walke, Anika, (editor.). Musekamp, Jan, (editor.). Svobodny, Nicole, (editor.).

Summary: Combining methodological and theoretical approaches to migration and mobility studies with detailed analyses of historical, cultural, or social phenomena, the works collected here provide an interdisciplinary perspective on how migrations and mobility altered identities and affected images of the "other." From walkways to railroads to airports, the history of travel provides a context for considering the people and events that have shaped Central and Eastern Europe and Russia.
