From the Publisher
With fossil fuels and water running out, and temperatures and sea levels rising due to climate change, whole communities will need to move and resettle. How will human migrations on this scale be managed in our modern world? This foreward-looking book explores these important issues as well as the solutions being put forward by politicians, experts, NGOs, and private citizens.

Full-Text Reviews
School Library Journal (April 1, 2010)
Gr 6-8-This valuable series discusses migration within and between countries and touches upon many reasons for, and aspects and effects of, it. Migration covers such topics as globalization, climate change, and the history of human dispersal. Among the chapters in Cultural Landscapes are some on "Cultural Superiority," "Preservation, Protection, & Isolation," and "Integration and Assimilation." Since so much is covered, the texts can be a little choppy at times, and the many accompanying photos are sometimes superfluous, but the multiple perspectives offered make the books worthwhile purchases despite the minor problems.
