Revue de presse

Exodus is an important book and one I have been waiting to read for many years ... [it is] a work that is humane and hard-headed about one of the greatest issues of our times (David Goodhart Sunday Times)

Paul Collier is one of the world's most thoughtful economists. His books consistently illuminate and provoke. Exodus is no exception (The Economist)

Tinged with poignancy ... a humane and sensible voice in a highly toxic debate (Colin Kidd Guardian)

Paul Collier's new book on international migration is magisterial. It offers a sophisticated, comprehensive, incisive, multidisciplinary, well-written balance sheet of the pros and cons of immigration for receiving societies, sending societies, and migrants themselves. For everyone on all sides of this contentious issue, Exodus is a "must-read" (Robert D. Putnam, Professor of Public Policy, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University)

[Praise for Paul Collier's The Plundered Planet]: A must-read (Sunday Times)

A path-breaking book (George Soros)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Mass international migration is a response to extreme global inequality, and immigration has a profound impact on the way we live. Yet our views - and those of our politicians - remain caught between two extremes: popular hostility to migrants, tinged by xenophobia and racism; and the view of business and liberal elites that 'open doors' are both economically and ethically imperative. With migration set to accelerate, few issues are so urgently in need of dispassionate analysis - and few are more incendiary.

Here, world-renowned economist Paul Collier seeks to defuse this explosive subject. Exodus looks at how people from the world's poorest societies struggle to migrate to the rich West: the effects on those left behind and on the host societies, and explores the impulses and thinking that inform Western immigration policy. Migration, he concludes, is a fact, and we urgently need to think clearly about its possibilities and challenges: it is not a question of whether migration is good or bad, but how much is best?

Paul Collier is Professor of Economics and Director of the Centre for the Study of African Economies at Oxford University and a former director of Development Research at the World Bank. He is the author of, among others, the award-winning The Bottom Billion and The Plundered Planet.

Une réflexion argumentée, rationnelle, à la fois humaine et sans tabou sur un des plus grands défis de notre temps. Je recommande à tous la lecture de cet essai éclairant, accessible et passionnant, qui n'hésite pas à prendre position et qui entend considérer les intérêts de tous, migrants comme populations autochtones. L'auteur est économiste de formation et adopte donc une perspective objective et rationnelle vraiment convaincante. Un des meilleurs ouvrages actuels sur l'immirgration.

Vous en saurez un peu plus sur la migration qui risque d'arriver d'ici 10 ou 15 ans et qui sera bien pire que l'actuelle!

HASH(0x909e0e88) étoiles sur 5 Honest, tolerant and inspiring analysis of the issues related to immigration 13 novembre 2013
Par Gundars Kulikovskis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
First book which does not avoid essential questions regarding multiculturalism and immigration. Seems very important issues EU will face on a way of further integration. Deepening understanding on how to respect the social capital of different regions and how to avoid conflicts is critical also for EU project success.
Latvia (I am living there) is country which during one generation experienced several rounds of huge immigration and emmigration waves relative to the size of population (some forced, some voluntary). Latvians at immigration problem are on both sides as a host nation and as a immigrants. The book covers most of the issues we as a country were facing and are still facing.
HASH(0x909e1d74) étoiles sur 5 We are all affected by migration and hence we need to read this 24 janvier 2016

The title and the topic are the two things that attracted me to this book. Exodus is both a story in the Bible and also a novel by Leon Uris. Both refers to the birth of Israel. I have read the novel and also the movie based on it. The book left a far significant impression on me. Coming to the second point, the topic of this book by Paul Collier relates to migration in both forms namely emigration and immigration. I am a migrant work myself. So you may imagine my interest in the topic. The theme of migration is a polarising topic. It is relevant to the times we live. You will see immigration discussed over and over again in discussions, debates and policies.

Paul Collier is a professor of Economics and Public Policy at the University of Oxford. So this is a non-fiction book about migration from an economist's point of view. The author's perspective is bound to pique our interest. After Freakonomics became a best seller, there has been scores of economists publishing book which been providing education in an entertaining fashion. This book is anywhere near as entertaining as other books by economists. But this book is an eye opener for everyone who falls on any side of the divisive topic of migration.

According to Paul Collier, there are many arguments for and against immigration. The other side of the coin, emigration, is never discussed or understood until there is a substantial flow of people out of one country commonly called brain drain. The government takes decisions on immigration without actually understanding the causes and effects thoroughly primarily to please the voters. So Paul Collier wants to lay out the facts on the table and also propose the right policies. If you look at the credentials, he is the right person to do so. But are they correct? This inference is up to each one of us who reads this book.

The language used by Paul Collier is easy to understand. Immigration is a serious topic and hence it is important to decide on a simple style of narration. Paul Collier succeeds here and hence we are still interested in the proceedings when he whips up charts to explain his theory about diaspora. In this book, Paul Collier categories the actors in immigration into three groups and provides the viewpoints of each group in detail. The groups are the immigrants, the indigenous population who are affected by the immigrants and the people left behind by the immigrants in the host country.

The author despite his credentials gives a well researched and a humbling explanation of the various aspects by dividing the actors in this drama into three different categories. He forces us to examine all aspects of immigration thereby questioning our beliefs and prejudices. The icing on the cake is final repartee. He proposes the right policy for immigration after he explains the issues related to migration without checks. Is it palatable to everyone? The jury is still out.

The book takes a central issue in the world today and breaks it down in a lucid, interesting fashion. I particularly appreciated the scientific, self-critical approach prevalent throughout the book.
