Overview

The many dangers of war, poverty, and hope have driven tens of millions of refugees and immigrants to flee their homes in search of a better life. Today the world is witnessing the highest numbers of displaced persons on record, even as resources and assistance are stretched thin. Refugees and immigrants have played a critical role in the history of nations, and today is no different. This book explores why people leave their home countries and what awaits them at their destination.
