A Geographer’s Perspective on Migration, Identity and Space

  • Russell KingEmail author


King, a geographer committed to interdisciplinary research, provides the book with a concluding essay that elaborates on the theoretical and methodological insights into the study of migration and space, on the aspects related to mapping and on the highlights of each chapter. The conclusion also assesses the overall contribution of the book to the study of migration as a spatio-temporal phenomenon. The conclusion shows that the book historicises migration in its diverse forms and in a variety of spatio-temporal contexts. The book speaks to a global audience of migration researchers and students who are fascinated by the study of human migration and its connections to a whole range of broader processes such as globalisation, inequality, geopolitics, multiculturalism, ethnicity and identity.
