The implications of mass migration in the world history boggle the mind. Some, in fact, would claim that migrations are history or that migrations are central to our understanding of history. Undaunted, nonetheless, eight scholars from Argentina, Germany, Spain, Sweden, the United States, and the United Kingdom have agreed to comment on this question. Apart from general guidelines, they have chosen their own approaches and had a large margin of freedom while addressing the issue. Thus we have a number of examples that illustrate how multi-dimensional are the implications and impacts of migration movements in terms of demography, economy (worldwide, or local), social structures, culture, politics, peoples' identity, mentality, and interrelations. The authors of the papers have tried to bridge these divides while simultaneously pointing toward newer developments and methodologies in migration study. We trust that these essays will influence others to navigate toward even newer fields of interest. The papers will be presented during the session (19th Specialized Theme) of the XXth International Historical Congress in Sydney,Australia, July 2005.
