Michael Bommes was one of the most brilliant and original migration studies scholars of our time. This posthumous collection brings together a selection of his most important work on immigration, integration, transnationalism, irregular migration and migrant networks. Each essay provides a rigorous and compelling critique of mainstream accounts, building on Bommes' distinctive systems theoretic approach. It will be required reading for all theoretically minded scholars and advanced students of migration studies.
