Reviews

@qu:In this significant work, the Scotts bring together much of the quantitative sociological and psychological literature on postmigration social psychological adjustment...instead of relying only on responses from the migrants themselves, they make extensive use of data gleaned from others with whom the migrants have regular contact. Therefore, their analyses of variables associated with postmigration adjustment reflect a richness and texture not often found in quantitative work of this nature...this work represents significant contribution to our understanding of the postmigration adjustment process. @source:Individual Differences and Determinants
