On the Move:
Changing Mechanisms of Mexico-U.S. Migration
Filiz Garip

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [in PDF format]


"On the Move is the definitive book on the last half century of Mexican migration to the United States. Rich in new empirical research and sweeping in its scope, this brilliant book revolutionizes our understanding of this important migration flow and allows the personal stories of the migrants to emerge and touch readers. Lucidly written, sophisticated in its argument, and thoroughly original in its conclusions, this work is an instant classic."--Mary Waters, Harvard University

"This clearly argued, deeply grounded, and original book looks back over the past half century and seeks to understand the mechanisms that have led more than ten million Mexican immigrants to relocate to the United States. A pleasure to read and filling an important gap in the literature, On the Move provides a uniquely comprehensive study of the largest migration stream to America."--Roger Waldinger, University of California, Los Angeles

"On the Move is a treasure trove of information about Mexican migration to the United States. Garip draws together a vast amount of research and economic and demographic trends to investigate the degree to which different kinds of migrants predominated during different periods of migration in the last half century. This is a major scholarly book."--Frank D. Bean, University of California, Irvine

"Identifying various groups of migrants from Mexico, On the Move reveals a more nuanced and substantially richer story than has been previously explored about Mexico-U.S. migration and its development since 1965."--Katherine Donato, Vanderbilt University
