This Land is Our Land: An Immigrant’s Manifesto is a timely and topical book that makes the case that migrants from the Global South, for several reasons, will continue to arrive in the Global North in numbers and provide much needed affordable and quality labour. At the same time, populists, right-wingers and nationalists will continue with their fear-mongering and scapegoating of immigrants and refugees in the receiving countries. To analyse this and investigate the critical political, economic, social and environmental factors that motivate the migrants to uproot and move abroad requires a balanced researcher to understand and explain the historical and colonial influence on human migration and someone sympathetic to the immigrants and the receiving societies.
