Virtually any commodity can move around the world to satisfy demand, but human beings have far less freedom. Many would-be migrants are forced to risk life and limb traveling illegally. Yet most rich countries are short of workers, have shrinking populations, and need more immigrants.

The No-Nonsense Guide to International Migration is a timely primer to a major issue that is never far from the headlines.

Part of the No-Nonsense Guides series.
