Abstract

journal of world history, spring 1999 intensified this process as it has "relativized" space and time conceptions, narrowing the time-space gap, eliminating physical distances between places and peoples, and creating more fluid identities and subjectivities. Featherstone rightly intimates that this globalizing mobility is also dispersing/distancing peoples into new hierarchies. But this point needs more emphasis. We might all be growing "closer" in a globalizing crucible, but late modernist and postmodernist distances and hierarchies of class, race, ethnicity, and gender continue to operate to keep us distant from each other even in our proximity. Overall, this book is one of the better collections on the ever more salient issue of international migration. The seminal point of the book, the "global history perspective" in migration introduced in the introductory chapter, remains largely confined to this chapter and is left undertheorized even there. Still, in their convergent interest, the contributors to the book manage to synthesize the protean faces and facets of human migration in relation to historical processes and practices (of territorial statist governance, for example) that have engendered the world in which we all seem to be migrants. nevzat soguk University of Hawai`i Studies in the Economic History of
