Inhaltsangabe

Most commentators look at the issue of immigration from the viewpoint of immediate politics. In doing so, they focus on only a piece of the issue and lose touch with the larger picture. Now Thomas Sowell offers a sweeping historical and global look at a large number of migrations over a long period of time. Migrations and Cultures shows the persistence of cultural traits in particular racial and ethnic groups, and the role these groups' relocations play in redistributing skills, knowledge, and other forms of "human capital." This book answers the question: What are the effects of disseminating the patterns of the particular set of skills, attitudes, and lifestyles each ethnic group has carried forth-both for the immigrants and for the host countries, in social as well as economic terms?

Kritikerstimmen

"This is a lively and provocative book that is important reading for anyone who thinks we have too many immigrants or too few, who favors affirmative action and multicultural programs or opposes them....Deflates any windbag oratory about the United States being a unique land of opportunity, where migrants succeed by discarding their former culture and leaping naked into the great melting pot." (New York Times)

"Interesting insights abound....comprehensive and detailed." (Publishers Weekly)

"Thomas Sowell is one of the wonders of the American intellectual world....Not only is this book crammed with detailed research that even experts will find instructive, but it is willing to look unflinchingly at evidence that suggests migration can be bad as well as good-and even that the era of mass migration may be drawing to a close." (Peter Brimelow, author of Alien Nation: Common Sense about America's Immigration Disaster)
