Migrations and Cultures: A World View
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungMost commentators look at the issue of immigration from the viewpoint of immediate politics. In doing so, they focus on only a piece of the issue and lose touch with the larger picture. In "Migrations and Cultures", Thomas Sowell shows the persistence of cultural traits in particular racial and ethnic groups and the role these groups' relocations play in redistributing skills, knowledge, and other forms of "human capital".
