Autorentext

David's primary research focuses on international migration. His current work explores the relationship between immigration and happiness, investigating whether (as many would assume) migration to a wealthy country is advantageous to the immigrants themselves in the sense that it brings them greater happiness. Articles emerging from this research have been published in Migration Studies, Social Indicators Research, Journal of Happiness Studies, and International Studies Review, among others. He has done consulting work on this topic for the International Organization for Migration in Geneva. He has also held a grant from the Economic and Social Research Council to investigate the UK "citizenship process".

David is currently Senior Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Leicester. He gained a PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a BA from Kenyon College. He is also on the board of RC31, the International Sociological Association's section on the sociology of migration.

Miller, University of Delaware This book provides lucid and intuitive explanations of the most important migration concepts as used in classrooms, among policymakers, and in popular and academic discourse.
