In the introduction the author discusses the Atlanto-centric hegemony and nation-state compartmentalization of scholarship on migration. In the first main section, he shows the evolution of migration history from a North Atlantic focus to a comprehensive migration region between Europe and the Americas. Next he asks to what degree the Black and the White Atlantic migration worlds have interacted. Third, he discusses the migration regions of the Chinese Diaspora and the trade emporia of the Indian Ocean. The author argues that throughout the development of distinct migration systems, cultures interacted. Throughout the essay he deals with historiographic issues and myths emerging from preconceptions and misleading terminologies. This study is based on: D. Hoerder, Cultures in Contact: World Migrations in the Second Millennium. Durham, N.C.: Duke University Press, 2002.
