    1. Later add 9.9.2015 I have come back to up the rating of this book to 5 stars This is because I find it keeps cropping up in conversations with my friends, and I keep going back and looking at the notes I took It is turning out to have been a really invaluable read Review below This is an interesting book, with a whole new take on immigration The author is Doug Saunders, a foreign correspondent for The Globe and Mail, a Canadian newspaper He is five times winner of The National Newspaper Award, a [...]

    2. This is a compellingly argued, highly entertaining book part travelogue, part sociological study which offers an optimistic new perspective on the slums surrounding many urban centers around the world today.Such slums are the products of the great rural to urban migration which has occurred across much of the world over the past few decades The massive shantytowns surrounding places like Karachi, Mumbai and Lagos and urban slums in Europe have often been viewed by outsiders as place of hopeless [...]

    3. Why Slums are a Good ThingTo understand what could be positive about something that appears to be so ugly, Doug Saunders seeks to first break the spell that country life has over some of us in the affluent West He is talking instead about subsistence farming in developing countries There is no romance in village life Rural living is the largest single killer of humans today, the greatest source of malnutrition, infant mortality and reduced lifespans The rural village is also the predominant sour [...]

    4. Doug Saunders is the European Bureau Chief for the Globe and Mail He has put together this book to show how the move from rural to urban living is in its last phase The ways in which we treat those areas, arrival cities, that immigrants first come to greatly affects how the cities themselves prosper He uses examples from all over the world, primarily Europe, North and South America, China, India, and Bangladesh to show how this phenomenon is common to all cultures He also uses history to show ho [...]

    5. Arrival City 2012 So yeah, the rural urban migration which is in full swing and will mean like 2 3 fucking billion people packing up and leave over the next 30 years or so is MASSIVE Forget international migration, the actual largest ever scale human movement takes place within countries from the shitty villages to the cities This insane movement is also expected to put an end to population growth by around 2050, once we re like 9 billion urbanites with less than 2.1 children If you re living in [...]

    6. Arrival City discusses the implications of mass migration from rural to urban areas and how it is affecting, for better or worse, cities around the world The focus of the book is on the arrival city , which is not necessarily the urban area that absorbs the migrants Instead, it is typically the surrounding areas where the migrants first begin to enter urban society in the suburbs, the slums, or the outskirts of town The arrival city serves basic functions and needs of the residents, but most imp [...]

    7. The twenty first century is entering an epoch that is reshaping our cities and economies by the appearance of Arrival Cities, a term coined by Saunders, which explains the final migration from the rural village to urban areas This isn t a localized event focused on the developing world, it is a global phenomenon that is effecting everyone worldwide These arrival cities establish new lives, where immigrants integrate themselves into a new world socially and economically, to set up life for themse [...]

    8. Really stimulating Saunders explores the concept of the arrival city, an urban space transformed by rural to urban migration He argues that rural to urban migration is going to be a hallmark of the coming century, and he seeks to identify the characteristics of successful arrival cities, which assist arrivals in propelling themselves upward, versus failed arrival cities, in which arrivals may stall, fall backwards, or turn to violence and instability He surveys a variety of examples of arrival c [...]

    9. Arrival City is an interesting thought provoking book about flexible urban planning for the poorest inhabitants of today s mega cities Really, it is very interesting and remarkably hopeful.The world has seen a huge migration from rural to urban, creating what many think of as squatter slums Doug Saunders brings these areas alive through stories about the lives of specific inhabitants Saunders describes the arc of a number of arrival cities in Africa, the Middle East, South America, Asia, Europe [...]

    10. A great accompaniment to contemporary news I read Doug Saunders fairly faithfully, and his topics and writing always impress me.A quote from the book that resonate with me poverty is, fundamentally, not the dearth of money or a lack of possessions or a shortage of talent or ambition but the absence of capacities the lack of tools or opportunities needed to function as a full citizen Idea attributed to Amartya Sen After examining arrival cities in China, Brazil, Egypt, Turkey, India, Canada, and [...]

    11. This book tells the story of social movements across the globe by using individuals in each region and following their rural to urban migration In doing this, the author is able to make a very strong case as to why certain cities fail to incorporate migrants into their economic and cultural fabrics, meanwhile others are able to achieve this quite easily What was most interesting about this book is just how convincingly it shows how the integration of migrants explains such phenomenons and radica [...]

    12. Doug Saunders s Arrival City How the largest migration in history is reshaping our world was listed by a few people as one of the interesting books published in 2010 and it is easy to see why Challenging conventional wisdom every inch of the way, Saunders has a good news story to tell about migration, and he is on a mission to make sure that everyone understands its ramifications every inch of the way.The elements in his tale are that the things so often seen as repellent, dysfunctional, chaoti [...]

    13. Excellently written Most important topic We are wittnessing the last great migration of people in history billions of humans are moving from rural to urban settling, changing size and structure of traditionel cities as well as political structures of whole nations No one should dream about keeping all those people at their places of birth they will move and they will go to where they hope to have a future at least for their children Western politics would be well advised to prepare in a construc [...]

    14. Such an excellent book Arrival cities really are so key to moving people out of poverty and transforming lives and nations, but if their development is badly managed, they become the seeds of the religious extremism we see in many European countries today Really insightful case studies throughout the book that explain the social issues we see in different cities Fascinating.

    15. I really enjoyed this exploration of arrival cities The work encouraged me to reflect on cities I have visited around the world as well as Canadian immigration policies I didn t like the narratives as much as his analysis of arrival cities.

    16. Excellent and entertaining book on urban migration, I learned a lot and it peaked my interest in the subject.

    17. Interesting new ways to look at and to understand the problems of immigration and ethnically segregated suburbs Worth reading

    18. Or how to change the world by embracing it s problems.People don t like being poor They want their kids to live better lives then they re living Just those self evident motivations are enough to have thrown the world into turmoil for centuries now, ever since the best bet for a better life could be found in cities, flocks of people have looked at the city for their futures.In Arrival City, Doug Saunders explains some large historical events through the lens of village to urban migration, explain [...]

    19. Doug Saunders has written a thought provoking and well researched work on the great rural to urban migration patterns that have taken placed how those arrival cities responded to the migration He documents the reality of the world s poor population, and the struggles they encounter when they attempt to urbanize and pull themselves out of poverty as not every arrival city was prepared or had the desire to respond to the flux of migrants After reading this book, I simply cannot look at poor neighb [...]

    20. What will be remembered about the 21st century, than anything else except perhaps the effects of a changing climate, is the great, and final shift of human populations out of rural, agricultural life and into cities We will end this century as a wholly urban species This movement engages and unprecedented number of people, two or three billion humans perhaps a third of the world s population, and will affect almost everyone in tangible ways It will be the last human movement of this size and sc [...]

    21. This was so interesting, I surrendered a night of sleep and basically read it one sitting For a non fiction, semi scholarly book, it s kind of a page turner about how village to city migrations occur and the implications of these migrations for all of us The author humanizes the phenomenon by introducing us to recent arrivals and telling us their individual stories He also gives us the profiles and histories of arrival cities all over the world It explains a lot I live in a destination city with [...]

    22. Libro ambicioso y a veces algo pretencioso que define la ciudad de llegada como esos arrabales de las grandes ciudades que sirven de espacio temporal para inmigrantes que llegan del campo y que acabar n integrados en la clase media.Describe tesis muy interesantes utilizando ejemplos de todo el mundo durante los ltimos 300 a os C mo conseguir que un barrio perif rico de una gran ciudad se convierta en una ciudad de llegada que contribuya al desarrollo del pa s y no en un barrio marginal que se co [...]

    23. This is one of the mind blowing books I read this year I have spent some time in the slums, shanty towns, and ghettos in my world travels and I never understood them the way I do now These arrival cities are not static places where the poor go to die, but dynamic neighborhoods offering opportunity for rural migrants to gain a toe hold into the sprawling cities of the world Anyone who has been involved with developing countries will find it interesting how these places operate.The biggest lesson [...]

    24. I will never look at poor neighborhoods, slums or urban sprawl the same way again A wonderful overview of the mass migration from country to city that continues around the world, and what makes arrival cities successes or failures I believe that anyone interested in urban planning, anyone concerned about immigration, poverty, urban crime or terrorism should read this book City leaders, urban planners, and state and federal legislators should understand the major points of this book before pontif [...]

    25. Saunders writes in a compelling, easy to read style He weaves comprehensive reasearch into the narratives of people he has met around the world people who are parts of arrival cities I know a fair bit about migration, but I found Saunder s book quite eye opening, particularly on the way migration IS happening, regardless of how governments particularly in the west try to to control it Whether or not you agree with his premise about being in the final throes of a rural to urban movement of humani [...]

    26. This may look like an innocuous paperback, short and easy to read with a few interesting cliff notes, but don t be fooled Arrival City is a monster in a mouse s jacket There is so much research in this book It was hard for me to get my mind around all the different people, places, and numbers presented Normally that would have been a turn off for me but Arrival City presented it in such a way that it just felt like good research I ve been reading a lot of books about global poverty and it s effe [...]

    27. Very interesting essential reading for anyone opposed to immigration the economic arguments for why developed countries need migrants are difficult to argue with Less certain about the seemingly rather simplistic equation of property ownership with successful integration Even by his own examples this works at most for a single generation of arrivals And the suggestion that Spain s approach to integrating immigrants had helped it to escape the financial crisis is currently looking less prescient. [...]

    28. This book will make you rethink your views on immigration It looks at a broad range of migrant experiences across both the developing and developed world, examines what makes certain neighbourhoods good or bad for new immigrants, explores the real flaws with those insular ethnic ghettoes in Europe that we keep hearing about, and provides a compelling indictment of temporary foreign worker programs Oh, and it s an easy read, well written and well paced Worthwhile reading for anyone interested in [...]

    29. Listen to Doug Saunders on his book Arrvial City here bit guY61cThe great hallmark cities of the 21st century may be names you barely know Not Paris, Beijing, London or New York, but Kibera, Kreuzberg, Liu Gong Li, and a lot of others you may never have heard of Cities where migrants come and get started, try to find their foothold in the global economy are called by Saunders, arrival cities They are places from big tracts of LA to the tough edge of Amsterdam Arrival cities, tells the stories of [...]
