A major new antidote to the unchallenged stereotypes which exist in immigration debates, this is an ambitious new account of the least understood and most relevant aspects of the immigrant experience today. Based on years of research into the lives of ordinary migrants, it offers richly textured stories of real people, working, building families and enriching their communities even as the political climate grows more hostile.
