Citizenship and Those Who Leave

The Politics of Emigration and Expatriation

Exodus and national identity

Exit, like entry, has helped define citizenship over the past 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.

"Groundbreaking. . . . A new perspective on migration."--Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare

"These articles taken together provide excellent historical documentation but also a gentle prodding to change the way much migration is talked about and even researched."--Journal of Anthropological Research

“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 College
