Reviews

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
