Birds of Passage provides an unorthodox research of migration ion to city commercial societies from underdeveloped rual components. It argues that such migrations are a continual function of business societies and they are generated through forces inherent within the nature of commercial economies. It explains why traditional monetary conception reveals such migrations so tricky to understand, and demanding situations a collection of older assumptions that supported the view that those migrations have been useful to either sending and receiving societies. Professor Piore heavily questions even if migration truly relieves inhabitants strain and rural unemployment, and no matter if it develops talents beneficial for the emergence of an commercial labour strength in the house kingdom. moreover, he criticizes the proposal that during the longer term migrant labour enhances local labour. at the foundation of this critique, he develops another concept of the character of the migration approach.

Recruitment is the key to the seeming paradoxes of migration processes; it explains why one region develops significant out-migration, and another, essentially comparable in terms of income, transportation costs, culture, and labor-force characteristics, never does so; how a low-income area can exist for years as an isolated, selfcontained economy despite its relative proximity to an industrialized area and then suddenly begin to generate significant emigration flows.
