Refugees and Asylum Seekers
Call Number: 305.9 DAL En
Most migration is a matter of push and pull, but this book is all about push; things are so bad for you that you will go anywhere to get away, often in the clothes you stand up in, taking only what you can carry. What could be so bad that you flee, leaving everything else behind?
The Age of Migration
Call Number: 325 CAS En
This work offers a global perspective on the nature of migration flows, why they take place, and their consequences for states and societies around the world. Chapters provide up-to-date descriptions and comparative analyses of major migration regions in the North and South. The role of population movements in the formation of ethnic minority groups is examined, as is the impact of growing ethnic diversity on economies, cultures, and political institutions.
