Review

NATIONAL BESTSELLER

Winner of the Donner Prize – 2011
Finalist for the Lionel Gelber Prize – 2011
Finalist for the Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing – 2011

"A broadly researched, passionate and portentous call for a new way to look at the experience of migrants. It is essential reading… for all who look at the future of cities with a mix of hope and fear."
Winnipeg Free Press

"A masterpiece of reporting, one of the most valuable and lucid works on public policy published anywhere in years."
Edmonton Journal

"A timely contribution to the discourse on global cities… Saunders offers a readable, immediate social history."
—Mark Kingwell, The Globe and Mail

"Doug Saunders is neither a glum pessimist nor a glib optimist and Arrival City will not please closed minds. But this provocative, disturbing, and exhilarating book is a delight for thoughtful readers. Indeed, it is essential. Migration is reshaping the world and, as Saunders demonstrates, the choices we make today will determine whether it brings prosperity or catastrophe tomorrow."
—Dan Gardner, author of Risk: The Science and Politics of Fear

"Arrival City is scarier than a dark urban fantasy and more gritty than the bottom of a demographer's coffee cup. It's also highly topical, as population growth and immigration are subjects of heated debate worldwide."
Daily Mercury

"Saunders's approach is through anecdotes and vignettes, but… they cumulate into a persuasive whole… Saunders's practical suggestions for helping immigrants… are sure to attract attention… [A] highly readable book."
—Paul Collier, Financial Times

"An important new book… Saunders's greatest strength lies in the global breadth of his reportage… His evocative descriptions… transform a complex, serious subject into a page-turning read."
Literary Review

"Few books can make rationalists feel optimistic and empowered for the future. This one does."
The Guardian
