Chapter Summary

This chapter attracts readers' attention to the myriad ways that authors specializing on migrations in a particular time but a wide variety of interconnected locations have approached the integration of migration into world history.Connecting Seas makes it possible to specify more precisely how migrations contributed to making the nineteenth century an era of globalization that was in some ways distinctive from the early modern globalization and from the global era of the latter years of the twentieth century. The racialized barriers created and imposed through restrictions on migration by national states and European empires between 1870 and 1940 also worked to create a decided temporal caesura, dampening the massive migrations of the nineteenth century.
