In Global Crossings, Alvaro Vargas Llosa cuts through the jungle of myth, falsehood and misrepresentation that dominate the immigration debate, clarifying the causes and consequences of human migration.

The book first looks at the immigrant experience, which connects the present to the past, and America to the rest of the world, and explores who migrants are and why they move. The conduct of immigrants today is no different than that of immigrants in the past. And contrary to popular claims, the patterns of contemporary migration do not differ fundamentally from those in the past.

“This compelling book is a must read for anyone on the vital yet contentious issue of immigration.”
Daniel L. McFadden, Nobel Laureate in Economic Sciences

“Alvaro Vargas Llosa’s timing is as superb as his book, which lands smack in the middle of a feverish Washington debate over America’s most recent arrivals.”
Wall Street Journal
“What motivates people to go from one country to another? Alvaro Vargas Llosa responds to this vital question in his new book Global Crossings. He leads us on a valuable tour of immigration throughout the world and then focuses on aspects of the history of immigration in the U.S.”
Vicente Fox, former President, Republic of Mexico
