Praise for the first edition:
"By far the best general book on its subject. . . . Moving Europeans will remain a standard reference for some time to come." –Charles Tilly

"Moch has reconceived the social history of Europe." —David Levine

Moving Europeans tells the story of the vast movements of people throughout Europe and examines the links between human mobility and the fundamental changes that transformed European life. This update of a classic text describes the Western European migration from the pre-industrial era to the year 2000. For this new edition, Leslie Page Moch reconsiders the 20th century in light of fundamental changes in labor, years of conflict, and the new migrations following the end of colonial empires, the fall of communism, and globalization. This new edition also features a greatly expanded and up-to-date bibliography.
