Abstract

"Exodus: How Migration is Changing Our World." Paul Collier. Oxford University Press. October 2013. --- In Exodus, Paul Collier lays out the effects of encouraging or restricting migration in the interests of both sending and receiving societies. Drawing on original research and numerous case studies, Collier explores this volatile issue from three unique perspectives: the migrants themselves, the people they leave behind, and the host societies where they relocate. Dalibor Rohac feels this forthcoming book does not fully get to grips with the evidence on untapped economic gains from free migration, but nevertheless this is still a must-read for students of migration.
