Explorations in Sights and Sounds
This book is a collection of papers originally presented at the 1982 Eighth International Economic History Conference held in Budapest. As the title suggests, the volume incorporates a wide range of geographical areas and historical time periods. This multidisciplinary study represents a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives and thus highlights issues and concerns from various disciplinary perspectives. The twenty-two essays in the volume include macro and micro case studies on several continents with authors from several countries. It makes information from many languages available to the English reader. In a sense there is almost an encyclopedic treatment of various migrating groups and methods of analyzing their migrating experience.
