Arrival City

How the Largest Migration in History is Reshaping Our World

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. This book offers a detailed tour of the key points in the Great Migration.

Doug Saunders is the European Bureau Chief of the Globe and Mail, Canada's largest and most respected national daily newspaper, and the author of a popular and award-winning weekly column devoted to the intellectual ideas and social developments behind the news. An experienced foreign-affairs writer who has won the Canadian equivalent of the Pulitzer Prize on four occasions, he has visited the unknown outskirts and fringes of cities in North and South America, Europe, the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent and China. He lives in London with his wife, the writer Elizabeth Renzetti, and their two children.

"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.

[a] highly readable book" FT
