Review:

"One of the year's most engaging and important works of non-fiction" (The Independent)

"Provocative, disturbing, and exhilarating book ... a delight for thoughtful readers. Indeed, it is essential. Migration is reshaping the world and, as Saunders demonstrates, the choices we make today will determine whether it brings prosperity or catastrophe tomorrow" (Dan Gardner, author of Risk: the Science and Politics of Fear)

"An important new book [that] engages while remaining serious. His evocative descriptions transform a complex, serious subject into a page-turning read" (Literary Review)

"Saunders's approach is through anecdotes and vignettes, but he has done his legwork so they cumulate into a persuasive whole ... [a] highly readable book" (FT)

Book Description:

A groundbreaking current affairs book documenting the largest population move in human history, as a third of the world's people migrate into cities, rupturing societies across the globe.
