This intriguing book explores the reasons why people migrate: pushes--involuntary migrations--and pulls--voluntary migrations. Historical migrations examined include: the slave trade; the relocation of Native Americans; migrations due to famine in Africa; migrations linked to the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq; the Irish potato famine; the migrations of Jews around the world; and the "Great Migration" of African Americans from the south to the north.
