Review of the hardback: 'The volume addresses various themes yet has one singular characteristic: the deliberate use of cross-national and whenever possible longitudinal data that provides a comprehensive view and comparative insights into immigration-related phenomena in today's Europe.' Virginie Guiraudon, Marie Curie Professor in Social and Political Sciences, European University Institute Review of the hardback: 'Migration and minority integration has become a major challenge for modern European societies. This fabulous collection of papers studies the complex discord between hope and threat.' Klaus F. Zimmermann, Director/IZA and President/DIW Berlin Review of the hardback: 'International migration is a multidimensional phenomenon, which can be better understood by combining competences ranging from demography to economics, from political science to sociology. This volume collects contributions from distinguished experts from these various disciplines and focuses on Europe, the region of the planet where migration is, at the same time, most badly needed and most heavily opposed. It is a must read for social scientists interested in this issue.' Tito Boeri, IGIER, University of Bocconi
