Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to the study of global migration history. Migration history has become a booming field in the last three decades and more recently it has increasingly become global. Instead of privileging mass migrations in the Atlantic, scholars have started to study similar movements in other parts of the world, especially in Asia. The book Globalising Migration History: The Eurasian Experience (16th-21st Centuries) shows migrating soldiers are an extremely important category in the history of human mobility. The proportion of soldiers to the total population is, however, unevenly spread across Eurasia, in both space and time. By 1500 major parts of Eurasia had well-developed commodity and labor markets, with the independent labor of small farmers, peasants, herdsmen, and craftsmen, alongside wage labor, supplemented under certain conditions by unfree labor.

Keywords: global migration history; human mobility; labor markets
