What will be remembered about our century, more than anything except perhaps changes to the climate, is the final shift of human populations from agricultural life to cities, the effects of which are being felt around the world. Arrival City gives us an on-the-ground view of this phenomenon—from Maryland to Shenzhen, from the favelas of Rio to the shanty towns of Mumbai, from Los Angeles to Nairobi.
Arrival City is a book which provides a detailed tour of 30 cities and villages on five continents, introducing the people and communities whose tragedies and victories are changing the world.
The author’s exhaustive research and investigative discoveries, drawing on the latest developments in scholarship, will change our views of migration, cities, population growth, foreign aid and politics.
