This article provides an outline of historical research on emigration from Europe to the New World in the century from 1850. It focuses first on the determinants of the volume and composition of emigration. Second, it examines the assimilation of immigrants and their integration in host country labor markets. The third topic is the rise of restrictive immigration policies and their role in the ending of mass emigration.
