Understanding Lifestyle Migration PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Understanding Lifestyle Migration free pdf Understanding Lifestyle Migration contributes to the wider turn towards understanding migration through the lens of social theory.

It thus aims to set a new and challenging research agenda that brings together researchers from a range of disciplines and geographical locations working on related forms of migration. The chapters engage theoretically with themes and debates relevant to contemporary social science such as place and space, social stratification and power relations, production and consumption, individualism, dwelling, imagination and representations, and community attachments and belonging.
