'In setting out the commonalities linking a diverse array of migrants, this welcome new collection convincingly establishes "lifestyle migration" as a phenomenon richly deserving of scholarly attention. It is a very timely and engaging contribution to mapping the landscape of contemporary mobility.' Vered Amit, Concordia University, Canada 'This is an important book for scholars of contemporary personal growth, tourism, mobility and globalization. The editors develop the useful concept of lifestyle migration, which is illustrated by excellent ethnographic chapters about newly chosen lives in such places as Varanasi, Florence, rural Michigan and the Mediterranean.' Nelson Graburn, University of California, USA, and London Metropolitan University, UK
