Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of places relevant to the study of global migration history. Besides, the nature and origin of the compulsion determine to a great extent the will of the migrants to stay or eventually to return, and thus the chances of interaction. A combination of the qualities of the migrant and the degree of freedom or compulsion under which he/she migrates over cross-cultural borders determines the chances of cross-cultural exchange. The migration trends provided in the book seem to suggest that Asian empires do not so much lack cross-cultural migrations as such, but rather are characterized by coercive and less commercial types, whereas in Europe we see more of the opposite pattern (migration to cities and free mercenary migrations), with Japan and the Middle East in between.

Keywords: Asian empires; cross-cultural migrations
