About this product
- DescriptionExodus is an insightful, expert foray into the explosive issue of immigration, from Paul Collier, award-winning ecomist and author of The Bottom Billion Mass international migration is a response to extreme global inequality, and immigration has a profound impact on the way we live. Yet our views - and those of our politicians - remain caught between two extremes: popular hostility to migrants, tinged by xephobia and racism; and the view of business and liberal elites that 'open doors' are both ecomically and ethically imperative. With migration set to accelerate, few issues are so urgently in need of dispassionate analysis - and few are more incendiary. Here, world-rewned ecomist Paul Collier seeks to defuse this explosive subject. Exodus looks at how people from the world's poorest societies struggle to migrate to the rich West: the effects on those left behind and on the host societies, and explores the impulses and thinking that inform Western immigration policy. Migration, he concludes, is a fact, and we urgently need to think clearly about its possibilities and challenges: it is t a question of whether migration is good or bad, but how much is best? 'Exodus is an important book and one I have been waiting to read for many years ...[it is] a work that is humane and hard-headed about one of the greatest issues of our times' - David Goodhart, Sunday Times 'Paul Collier is one of the world's most thoughtful ecomists. His books consistently illuminate and provoke. Exodus is exception' - Ecomist 'Tinged with poignancy ...a humane and sensible voice in a highly toxic debate' - Colin Kidd, Guardian Paul Collier is Professor of Ecomics and Director of the Centre for the Study of African Ecomies at Oxford University and a former director of Development Research at the World Bank. He is the author of, among others, the award-winning The Bottom Billion and The Plundered Planet.
