Immigrants: Your Country Needs Them

by Philippe Legrain
£10.99   paperback  Little, Brown Book Group (Abacus) (2009)

Immigrants: Your Country Needs Them by Philippe Legrain Immigration divides our globalising world like no other issue. We are swamped by bogus asylum-seekers and inflitrated by terrorists, our jobs stolen, our benefit sytem abused, our way of life destroyed - or so we are told.
Philippe Legrain, author of the critically acclaimed Open World, has written the first book that looks beyond the headlines. Why are ever-rising numbers of people from poor countries arriving in Europe, North America and Australasia? Can we keep them out? Should we even be trying?
 
Combining compelling first-hand reporting from around the world, incisive socio-economic analysis and a broad understanding of what's at stake politically and culturally, Immigrants is a passionate but lucid book. In our open world, more people will inevitably move across borders, Legrain says - and we should generally welcome them. They do the jobs we can't or won't do - and their diversity enriches us all. Left and right; free-marketeers and campaigners for global justice; enlightened patriots - all should rally behind the cause of freer migration, because They need Us and We need Them.

"This fact-filled and extremely convincing books shows that migration can benefit the migrants, the country they leave and the country they move to."
(John Norberg, author of 'In Defence of Global Capitalism')
