Arrival City Summary

Arrival City: How the Largest Migration in History is Reshaping Our World by Doug Saunders

* A third of the world's people are in the midst of the largest population move in human history, as the last of the word's rural populations abandons agriculture and moves to the urban areas of the developing world and of the wealthy West. *Both a groundbreaking work of reportage and an exciting, vivid travelogue, Arrival City sees award-winning journalist Doug Saunders offering a detailed tour of the key points in the Great Migration, and considers the actions that have turned this enormous population shift into either a success or a violent failure.

Arrival City Reviews

"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 *
