Samy Appadurai has once again taken a bold approach to an issue that we as citizens of the world hear about almost daily; global migration.
Samy Appadurai is an award-winning journalist, columnist, broadcaster, consultant and community worker. It is with this background in mind that he provides an in-depth analysis of global immigration, immigration history and where Canada fits into this issue.
As in his previous books “Canada: The Meat of the World Sandwich”, “Canada a Nation in Motion” and “Canada-An Evolving Vision” Samy’s extensive knowledge particularly about international relations feature very prominently. His love for Canada again shines through in this book but he is not afraid to point out where this country is falling short and where improvements need to be made.
Samy also takes on the issue of misinformation when it comes to the issue of mass migration and the unfounded fears expressed by some. With his signature wit, he refutes critics by presenting the facts as they are which is refreshing in a time when we are bombarded with so called “alternative facts” about migrants and refugees.
Samy Appadurai’s masterful storytelling helps make a very complex subject easy to understand and yet he is not afraid to spark conversation and debate.
