What does it mean for people to have to leave their homes, and what happens when they seek entry to another country? This book explores the history of refugees and migration around the world and the effects on people of never-ending war and conflict. It compares the effects on society of diversity and interculturalism with historical attempts to create a racially 'pure' culture. It takes an international perspective, and offers a range of views from people who have personal experience of migration, including the campaigners Meltem Avcil and Muzoon Almellehan, the comedian and actor Omid Djalili and the poet Benjamin Zephaniah. Aimed at young people aged 10 and upwards, the book encourages readers to think for themselves about the issues involved. There is also a role-play activity asking readers to imagine themselves in the situation of having to decide whether to leave their homes and seek refuge in a new country. Part of the groundbreaking and important 'And Other Big Questions' series, which offers balanced and considered views on the big issues we face in the world we live in today. Other titles in the series include: What is Humanism? How do you live without a god? What is Feminism? Why do we need It?

Covering the various reasons that people may want to move to the UK, this book takes an in-depth look at why and how people choose to become immigrants. From families fleeing war-torn countries, to workers looking for job opportunities, we cover the motivations, the challenges and the successes. This is a sympathetic and positive look at immigration today, helping children to understand the push and pull factors that bring people here. We consider the processes involved in immigration and asylum, how it can be hard to gain entry to the country and what happens when people try to get here illegally.

Bienvenidos a Occidente es una bellísima fábula sobre los refugiados, una novela con una sólida posición ética que nos cuestiona en qué mundo queremos vivir. Por Mohsin Hamid, uno de los autores más reputados de la actualidad. La historia de amor furtivo de Nadia y Said tiene lugar en una ciudad llena de puntos de control y bombas. Es un laberinto humano donde, al empezar la guerra civil, surgen extrañas habladurías: «rumores sobre puertas que podían llevarlo a uno a otro lugar, concretamente a lugares remotos, alejados de aquella trampa mortal de país». En una historia épica de tremenda actualidad, esta insólita pareja de amantes huirá para recalar primero en Mikonos y luego ir desplazándose hacia el oeste, compartiendo el periplo vital de millones de personas que sufren en sus carnes el rechazo (o, en ocasiones, la bienvenida) de Occidente. Reseñas: «Dinámica y lapidaria. Una novela absorbente.» Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times «Elegante y actual. Hamid es un escritor tan romántico como político: en el centro de sus novelas siempre late una historia de amor.» Louis Wise, The Sunday Times «Una obra maestra, que estira los límites de lo verosímil para hablar del lugar en el mundo que ocupan inmigrantes y refugiados. Pero es también una novela asentada en lo real. Un libro bellísimo.» Michael Chabon «En el corazón de la novela, la cuestión moral sobre los derechos migratorios llega donde ninguna otra obra ha llegado todavía.» Josephine Livingstone, The New Republic «Impresionante. Bienvenidos a Occidente confirma la reputación de Hamid como ventrílocuo genial e implicado en los asuntos más urgentes de nuestro tiempo.» Andrew Motion, The Guardian «Extraordinaria.» Zadie Smith «Lo que sitúa a Bienvenidos a Occidente en la élite de la novela contemporánea es su manera de narrar,como ningún otro libro, lo que está sucediendo hoy y forma parte ya de la Historia.» Davide Piacenza, Rivista Studio «Necesitamos más escritores como Hamid. No nos conduce a la utopía, sino a la puerta de un futuro cercano donde se entrevén siluetas de forasteros: solo hay que cruzar el umbral y conocerlos.» Viet Thanh Nguyen

What is feminism? Why do we need it? Where does it come from? Why does it exist? The word 'feminism' is bandied about a lot in the media, often with little or no explanation as to what it means. What is Feminism? aims to combat this, it's a brilliant introduction for children to the movement, looking at the history of feminism, what it is today and its enormous relevance to young people. Divided into sections such as Work and Money, Politics and Power, Media, Education, Family and Bodies, the book looks at how feminism, and the feminist movement, have affected each area in turn through history, and at the issues they are working to combat today. It also presents key figures in the fight for equal rights, from the Pankhursts to Germaine Greer and Malala Yousafzai, and looks at modern initiatives such as Emma Watson's He for She campaign. It then goes on to explain why we still need feminism, how women are portrayed by the media, how advertising and airbrushing affect body image, and how the gender pay gap is still very much in existence. As such, it is a vital tool for children in the process of figuring out the world and how it works, and informs and explains gently, without sensation or scaremongering. Prominent feminists, such as Radio 1 DJ Gemma Cairney and Chief Executive of Girlguiding UK Julie Bentley, offer contributions explaining why they are feminists, and what feminism means to them, giving the book a human angle, as well as a political one. This is a book for girls and boys - it explains why feminism, and equal rights for all, benefit men as well as women, and that feminism is not about the promotion of women's rights at the expense of men's.

Refugee and Forced Migration Studies has grown from being a concern of a relatively small number of scholars and policy researchers in the 1980s to a global field of interest with thousands of students worldwide studying displacement either from traditional disciplinary perspectives or as a core component of newer programmes across the Humanities and Social and Political Sciences. Today the field encompasses both rigorous academic research which may or may not ultimately inform policy and practice, as well as action-research focused on advocating in favour of refugees' needs and rights. This authoritative Handbook critically evaluates the birth and development of Refugee and Forced Migration Studies, and analyses the key contemporary and future challenges faced by academics and practitioners working with and for forcibly displaced populations around the world. The 52 state-of-the-art chapters, written by leading academics, practitioners, and policymakers working in universities, research centres, think tanks, NGOs and international organizations, provide a comprehensive and cutting-edge overview of the key intellectual, political, social and institutional challenges arising from mass displacement in the world today. The chapters vividly illustrate the vibrant and engaging debates that characterize this rapidly expanding field of research and practice.

This international and comparative book, written by an experienced author, shows how inspirational civic leaders are making a major difference in cities across the world. The analysis provides practical lessons for local leaders and a significant contribution to thinking on public service innovation for anyone who wants to change urban society for the better.

El Papa Francisco acaba de publicar la primera encíclica sobre ecología, seis meses antes de que se produzca la Cumbre de la ONU en París sobre el Cambio Climático. En la encíclica, que lleva como título la expresión italiana «Laudato si’» —en castellano, «Alabado seas»—, el Papa muestra su preocupación por aquellas cuestiones que tienen que ver con el cuidado de nuestro planeta: el cambio climático y el calentamiento global; la contaminación producida por los residuos no biodegradables, tóxicos y radioactivos; las energías renovables; la corrupción en el mercado internacional del petróleo o el consumo personal de las energías, entre otras. También hace referencia a la contaminación en nuestras vidas del mundo digital, de las nuevas tecnologías y más en concreto de las redes sociales. El Santo Padre recoge el extenso magisterio de san Juan Pablo II y de Benedicto XVI. Resultan novedosas las referencias que hace al magisterio del patriarca ecuménico de Constantinopla, Bartolomé I, en temas como el cambio climático, la deforestación y la destrucción de los humedales. No se trata de un texto dirigido solo a católicos, sino que el propio Papa invita a todas las personas a reflexionar en serio, pues «nunca la humanidad ha tenido tanto poder sobre sí misma, y nada garantiza que lo utilizará bien».
