Critical Acclaim
‘With a remarkable 195 short and synthetic contributions, this impressive book characterizes diverse transformations and struggles brought on by world migration. Its key concept, artivism, speaks to the meanings, expressions, and values involved in migration, as well as the economics and politics that organize it.’
