New Internationalist books and publications

Reviews

'As a short book on a highly contentious subject, the _No-Nonsense Guide to International Migration_ will prove useful to those who care about the topic because it clarifies the issues involved so thoroughly and presents lucid arguments in a very readable manner.' - Bona Malwal, Editor of the Sudan Democratic Gazette .

Virtually any commodity can move around the world to satisfy demand but human beings have far less freedom. Many would-be migrants are forced to risk life and limb traveling illegally. Yet most rich countries are short of workers, have shrinking populations and need more immigrants. This is a timely guide to a major issue that is never far from the political headlines.

About the Author: Peter Stalker is a former co-editor of the New Internationalist who now works as a consultant to a number of UN agencies. He has written two books on migration for the International Labor Organization - The Work of Strangers: A Survey of International Labour Migration, and Workers without Frontiers: The impact of Globalization on International Migration.
