Ours is an era marked by extraordinary human migrations, with some 200 million people alive today having moved from their country of origin. The political reaction in Europe and the United States has been to raise the drawbridge: immigrant workers are needed, but no longer welcome. So migrants die in trucks or drown en route; they are murdered in smuggling operations or ruthlessly exploited in illegal businesses that make it impossible for the abused to seek police help. More than 15,000 people have died in the last twenty years trying to circumvent European entry restrictions. In this beautifully written book, Jeremy Harding draws haunting portraits of the migrants and anti-immigrant zealots he encountered in his investigations in Europe and on the US Mexico border. Harding's painstaking research and global perspective identify the common characteristics of immigration policy across the rich world and raise pressing questions about the future of national boundaries and universal values.

Review:

Beyond its investigative insight, Border Vigils is also a ground-breaking chronicle of migrant voices rarely heard. Ranging from the southern shores of Italy and the backstreets of England to the embattled US Mexico front line, Harding's brilliant work could not be more timely and timeless. --Jeff Biggers, author of State Out of the Union: Arizona and the Final Showdown Over the American Dream

Praise for The Uninvited: A remarkable book ... Succinct, witty and judicious --Daily Telegraph

Praise for The Uninvited: A gripping blend of reportage and analysis. --Independent

Book Description Verso Books, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. We are living in the great age of human migration. Some 200 million people alive today have moved from their countries of origin and, according to a recent international survey, as many as 700 million more would migrate if they could. The political reaction - in Europe no less than in the United States - has been to batten down the hatches. More than a million migrants have been expelled from the US during Barack Obama's administration, a record rate. Jeremy Harding's evocative reporting across Europe and on the US - Mexican border provides fascinating, haunting portraits of migrants, as well as less attractive and sometimes frightening profiles of the anti- immigrant zealots who oppose them. Equally unparalleled is Harding's comparative analysis of the failure, indeed, mirage of exclusionary policy in both Europe and the US. Seller Inventory # AAJ9781781680636
