Peter Stalker unravels the global migration paradox, in the process explaining the economic and social issues behind the flow of humans. 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 travelling 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.
