Rapid urban industrialisation and economic expansion set the tide of migrants in motion. This book studies the motives and behaviour of migrating people, and their contributions to the process of modernisation. The extent and persistence of mobility are examined using quantitative and qualitative sources such as registers, censuses, guild and craft records, diaries and biographies. The book also demonstrates the ways in which family networks are organised, debts bonded and reciprocities engaged through the processes of mobility.

Keywords:   industrialisation, migrants, modernisation, mobility, family networks, debts
