Reviews

"DARING, SMART, UNFORGETTABLE... A rich exploration of our times and the way forward."
--Elif Shafak, author of the Booker Prize-shortlisted Ten Minutes Forty Eight Seconds in This Strange World
"A REAL EYE-OPENER...Move makes clear that, though 'mobility' can be for some a desperate flight for refuge, it's also--for younger generations growing into a multi-cultural, one-planet civilization--a new expression of possibility."
--Kim Stanley Robinson, Winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy Awards and New York Times bestselling author of Ministry for the Future
"IMPRESSIVE...In Move, Parag Khanna proves again why he is one of the world's most incisive thinkers....The book's great accomplishment is that it not only reveals what will soon be upon us, but what lies ahead for our children and grandchildren."
--Alec Ross, New York Times bestselling author of The Industries of the Future
"ILLUMINATES A HOST OF NEW REALITES...The ability of human beings to be mobile is a key aspect of modern society--one that the pandemic has only accelerated. The creative class and those in the mobile vanguard are already searching out and creating tomorrow's leading global hubs of innovation, which pair vibrancy with sustainability, affordability, and inclusivity. Parag Khanna's Move outlines the forces creating a new geography of opportunity."
-- Richard Florida, bestselling author of The Rise of the Creative Class and The New Urban Crisis
"SCINTILLATING... A clear-eyed, unapologetic defense of the right to migrate."
--Suketu Mehta, author of Pulitzer Prize finalist Maximum City and This Land is Our Land
"BRILLIANT...Move describes a world shaped not just by democracy or capitalism, but, increasingly, by migration."
--Balaji S. Srinivasan, formerly, the CTO of Coinbase and General Partner at Andreessen Horowitz
"AUTHORITATIVE AND FACT FILLED YET PLEASURABLE TO READ... A thorough investigation of the history of human migration and a discerning estimate of its probable future."
--Martin Gray, author of Sacred Earth and creator of SacredSites.com
"THOUGHT PROVOKING...As this book demonstrates, the climate crisis is just one of many forces that will have humans more on the move this century."
--Bill McKibben, New York Times bestselling author of Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?
"KHANNA CUTS THROUGH THE CLUTTER LIKE NO ONE ELSE...Without fundamentally rethinking our economic models, the colliding demographic, environmental, and political crises many countries face will snowball into economic disasters."
--Nouriel Roubini, New York Times bestselling coauthor of Crisis Economics
"NO ONE KNOWS MORE ABOUT HOW GLOBAL CONNECTIVITY WORKS... Here Khanna examines exactly how the coming massive migrations away from increasing droughts and toward jobs can play out to humanity's great benefit--or great harm."
--Stewart Brand, creator of the Whole Earth Catalog
