Summary

John Berger introduces a new edition of his seminal study of migrant workers, illustrated by photographer Jean Mohr.

A Seventh Man Summary

A Seventh Man by John Berger

"Why does the Western world look to migrant laborers to perform the most menial tasks? What compels people to leave their homes and accept this humiliating situation? In A Seventh Man, John Berger and Jean Mohr come to grips with what it is to be a migrant worker--the material circumstances and the inner experience--and, in doing so, reveal how the migrant is not so much on the margins of modern life, but absolutely central to it. First published in 1975, this finely wrought exploration remains as urgent as ever, presenting a mode of living that pervades the countries of the West and yet is excluded from much of its culture."

A Seventh Man Reviews

"I admire and love John Berger's books. He writes about what is important, not just interesting-in contemporary English letters, he seems to be peerless; not since Lawrence has there been a writer who offers such attentiveness to the sensual world with responsiveness to the imperatives of conscience. He is a wonderful artist and thinker.A" - Susan Sontag "This book is ever more timely." - Geoff Dyer
