More About Global Crossings by Alvaro Vargas Llosa
 
 
 
Overview
The recent reawakening of the debate about migration in the new millennium has evoked intense emotion, particularly in the United States and Europe, and "Global Crossings "cuts through the jungle of myth, falsehood, and misrepresentation that dominates the debate, clarifying the causes and consequences of human migration. The book first looks at the immigrant experience, which connects the present to the past, and America to the rest of the world, and explores who immigrants are and why they move. It contends that the conduct of today is no different than that in the past, and contrary to the claims by immigration critics, the patterns of contemporary migration do not differ fundamentally from those of other epochs. The book then discusses immigration and culture and tackles assimilation, globalization, and cultural differences. In assessing whether critics are justified in pointing to a major cultural shift, award-winning author Alvaro Vargas Llosa reviews such topics as religion, education, entrepreneurial spirit, and attitudes toward the receiving society, and analyzes economic factors that include jobs, wages, education, and the welfare state. The book concludes that immigration's contributions to an economy far outweigh the costs, and it makes a call for open minds and provides a pro-immigration agenda for reform.
