Full description: 

The chapters in this book reflect on the work of seminal Australian geographer, the late Professor Graeme Hugo. Graeme Hugo was widely respected because of his impressive contributions to scholarship and policy in the fields of migration, population and development, which spanned several decades. This collection of works contains contributions from authors whose own research has been influenced by Hugo and includes numerous authors who worked closely with Hugo throughout his career. The collection provides an opportunity to reflect on Hugo's legacy, and also to foreground contemporary scholarship in his key areas of research focus. The chapters are organised into two thematic threads. Part 1 contains works relating to `Population, Migration and Settlement in Australia', while Part 2 focuses on `Labour and Environmental Migration in the Asia-Pacific'. Together, these two thematic threads provide broad coverage of Graeme Hugo's key areas of research focus. The chapters also serve as a reminder of Hugo's steadfast concern with producing careful scholarship for the public good, and seek to prompt continued work in this vein. The chapters originally published in special issues in Australian Geographer.
