INTRODUCTION


       The acceleration of social and geographic mobility occasioned by the
political and industrial revolutions of the nineteenth century is one of the
most important factors in the development of man's present state of social
consciousness.
       Indeed, in the United States alone, nothing aroused man's interest in
the social destiny of his fellow man as profoundly as the great waves of immi-
gration and the subsequent evolution of a new stage in urban maturation.
       The International Migration Digest was established to encourage further
advancement in the study of social and geographic mobility by presenting a
multilateral coverage of activities and research in this field.
       The Digest is divided into five departments, i.e., articles, legislation,
news, statistics, and books.
       The articles on social and especially geographic mobility are to be
chosen from sociological reviews published both here and abroad. They will
be chosen from those which treat the subject matter from a sociological point
of view with special regard for theory and measurement. This section may be
broadened some time in the future to include articles which give a psychological
approach to mobility.
       Summaries of important legislation regarding migration enacted both
here and abroad form the legislation department.
       Under International Migration News items regarding migrant activi-
ties and studies in the fields of migration will be found.
       In the statistical department we will give an analytical presentation
of current statistics on mobility.
       Our book department will include selective bibliographies, book reviews,
book lists, and possibly book condensations.
       In organizing this digest, we realize of course, that it is impossible to
present a totally comprehensive view of so vast a subject. Our hope, however,
is that what is presented here may engender an intensified interest in one of
the most telling social problems of our time.
