Global migration and the world economy : two centuries of policy and performance by T. J Hatton( Book )
20 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 803 libraries worldwide
Global Migration and the World Economy covers two great migration waves: the first, from the 1820s to the beginning of World War 1, when immigration was largely unrestricted; the second, beginning in 1950, when mass migration continued to grow despite policy restrictions. The book also explores the period between these two global centuries when world migration shrank sharply because of two world wars, immigration quotas, and a great depression. The authors assess the economic performance of these world migrations, the policy reactions to deal with them, and the political economy that connected one with the other. The last third of Global Migration and the World Economy focuses on modern experience and shows how contemporary debates about migration performance and policy can be informed by a comprehensive historical perspective
The age of mass migration : causes and economic impact by T. J Hatton( Book )
20 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 778 libraries worldwide
"About fifty-five million Europeans migrated to the New World between 1850 and 1914. This was an unprecedented migration that marked a profound shift in the distribution of global population and economic activity." "In The Age of Mass Migration: An Economic Analysis, Timothy J. Hatton and Jeffrey G. Williamson document this exodus and analyze its causes and effects. Their comprehensive study explores several key areas of inquiry that are still contested today, such as: Why did a nation's emigration rate typically rise with early industrialization? How did immigrants choose their destinations? Were international labor markets segmented? How successfully did migrants assimilate in host country labor markets? Did immigrants "rob" jobs from locals? Did emigration improve the lot of those left behind? The authors, both eminent economic historians, confront these questions in fresh ways. They consider existing debates in light of contemporary evidence and open new lines of inquiry. Above all, they argue that mass migration made an important contribution to the striking convergence of living standards between poor and rich countries in the West."--Jacket

Coping with city growth during the British Industrial Revolution by Jeffrey G Williamson( Book )
20 editions published between 1990 and 2002 in English and held by 484 libraries worldwide
Coping with City Growth assesses Britain's handling of city growth during the First Industrial Revolution by combining the tools used by Third World analysts with the archival attention and eclectic style of the economic historian. What emerges is an exciting and provocative accounts that have long occupied problem development economists: urban unemployment, underemployment, and the alleged failure of city labour markets to absorb the flood of rural emigrants; the persistent influx of newcomers, which makes it difficult for municipal planners to improve the quality of social overhead; the crowding of migrants into densely packed urban slums with few, if any, social services; and rising density and city size which augment pollution while lowering the quality of the urban environment

Globalization and the poor periphery before 1950 by Jeffrey G Williamson( Book )
20 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 309 libraries worldwide
"In Globalization and the Poor Periphery before 1950 Jeffrey Williamson examines globalization through the lens of both the economist and the historian, analyzing its economic impact on industrially lagging poor countries in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Williamson argues that industrialization in the core countries of northwest Europe and their overseas settlements, combined with a worldwide revolution in transportation, created an antiglobal backlash in the periphery, the poorer countries of eastern and southern Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Latin America."--Jacket
