Long DescriptionGroundbreaking in its comprehensiveness, this book illuminates the migration of workers from Turkey to Western Europe with new perspectives previously overlooked in research. The first study of its kind to cover the entire migration process, making extensive use of primary as well as secondary sources in four languages, it draws on both the historiography and the social sciences of migration. Presenting new analyses of the so-called 'push' factors behind this movement, "Labour Migration from Turkey to Western Europe" also explores are the role of the sending state, the system and channels through which labour exits, the labouring population's attitudes towards moving to the West and the relevance of social networks in the migration process. A critical assessment of the significance of Turkish labour migration with regard to the demand for foreign labour in Europe is offered, with particular emphasis on the cases of Germany and the Netherlands.With an examination of the reasons for which the guest worker system as a whole was introduced into Western Europe, alongside a cross-comparative investigation of the employment Turkish migrants by economic sector, this volume adopts a multidisciplinary approach that will be of interest to researchers and policy makers alike in the field of migration.

This weekend was a long one. We installed a new database server and copied all the data from the old server to the new one.

Then of course, we had to sync all the new data that collected on the old server while we were setting up the new server.

It was a time consuming process but we didn't have even one minute of down time over the weekend. The switch over was seamless.

The old server is becoming our backup server with instant data replication. This way, we no longer need to shut the site down for a couple hours each week to perform data backups. We can also run some of the more processor intense extract processes using the backup server instead of the live main server.

All these changes should mean more up time, faster response time and fewer issues long term.
