It continues with a summary of the chapters of the book, carefully relating each chapter to the general text. The book is divided into two parts. The first comprises an account and a discussion of different kinds of migration, representative of many population flows of recent times, and provides a general overview of research methodologies. The second part is an analysis of how societies are shaped by immigration, focused on aspects such as migration policies, family reunification, the integration of migrants and social cohesion.
