A World of Myth is an excellent introduction to the topic of global migration, xenophobia and racism. Written by Nobel M. Pasi (a global migrant who has lived in Zimbabwe, the United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand and Australia), the book looks at 28 myths about migrants that are commonly spread by politicians, the mass media, and the public at large. Using data from nations across the world, each myth is challenged for its validity. - Do migrants steal jobs from locals and hurt the national economy?- Do migrants just want a “free ride” on public benefits systems?- Does multiculturalism threaten national culture and social cohesion? - What is the correlation between migrants and crime? Answers to all these questions and more are found in this book.
