Using statistical analysis, Cadwallader attempts to develop models of migrants' residential distribution. He constructs a framework to balance abstract and concrete elements, human agency and social structure, structural determinacy and humanism, and theory and observation. Cadwallader divides migration into intra-city and inter-regional population movements. The first chapter is devoted to an introduction, review, and critique of theoretical perspectives. The book is an interdisciplinary product combining theories, models, and concepts from economics, psychology, sociology, and demography. It is well researched; Cadwallader has cited different examples throughout, mostly from developed societies, to support his position. To make the work more fruitful, he could have used more examples from underdeveloped societies. Requires advanced statistical knowledge. Graduate; faculty. E.
