One of the best new book releases of this week is:
A Good Provider Is One Who Leaves
One Family and Migration in the 21st Century
Migration is changing the world–reordering politics, economics, and cultures across the globe. With nearly 45 million immigrants in the United States, few issues are as polarizing. But if the politics of immigration is broken, immigration itself–tens of millions of people gathered from every corner of the globe–remains an underappreciated American success. Expertly combining the personal and panoramic, DeParle presents a family saga and a global phenomenon. Ordinary and extraordinary at once, their journey is a twenty-first-century classic, rendered in gripping detail.
