From the reviews:"`A Life-Course Perspective on Migration and Integration' is an edited volume that compiles a number of articles on immigrants' integration. ... Unlike many edited books, this volume has a clear theoretical message and a visible red thread. ... the volume does a good job in showing that the life course approach is something between a helpful reminder of the theoretical principles that should guide empirical integration research and a magic bullet for those interested in the topic." (Claudia Diehl, European Journal of Population, Vol. 28, 2012)
