This challenging study examines the most dramatic consequences of European expansion and looks at why millions of ex-Europeans now live in the Americas while so few are in Asia and Africa and why few Africans migrated after the slave trade had been abolished. The authors further address the issues of the demography of migrant points of origin; female migration; integration or isolation of the migrants; return migration; and capital movements related to migration.
