Product description

Exit, like entry, has helped define citizenship over the last two centuries, yet little attention has been given to the politics of emigration. How have countries impeded or facilitated people leaving? How have they perceived and regulated those who leave? What relations do they seek to maintain with their citizens abroad and why? "Citizenship and Those Who Leave" reverses the immigration perspective to examine how nations define themselves not just through entry but through exit as well.

Review quote

"This volume reminds us that for most of the modern period and in a greater number of places, exodus, rather than entry, was the crucial issue, that a larger population has been perceived more often as a blessing than as a problem. The editors assemble a list of international scholars that reads like a 'who 's who ' of migration studies, and in every case the quality of the contributions matches the reputation of the contributors" Jose C..Moya, professor of history, UCLA and Barnard
