Lars Meier, Lecturer at the Department of Sociology at the Technical Institute of Berlin, and twelve collaborators have produced Migrant Professionals in the City: Local Encounters, Identities and Inequalities, a masterful collection for students of globalization, global migration, and social inequality in comparative urban settings. Specifically, this volume contributes to our understanding of the social dynamics surrounding the lives of highly educated professional migrants for whom the quality of work is the ultimate determinant of their lives as global sojourners. This edited collection is extraordinarily well organized and well written, and it offers copious insights into the personal and professional lives of highly mobile and highly skilled professionals who are migrants to twelve specific urban locations. Contained within the book are several timely and valuable themes germane to the study of global migration that both lay readers and academics alike will appreciate.
