RaveThe Star Tribune... arresting ... Shah’s voluminous research shows that living things have been on the move for millennia, often improving the places where they land. She describes extraordinary migrations...all centuries before humans crossed the seas. In fascinating passages on mitochondrial DNA and GPS technology, she explains that the vast migrations of plants and birds was pretty much a mystery to scientists until very recently ... But Shah has assigned herself a much larger task, for the book also undertakes a critique of Western science since the 18th century, exposing the bigotry that has often poisoned its conclusions. The history of eugenics, \'race science\' and population studies consume three long chapters—too long, in this reader’s view ... That said, The Next Great Migration is both a terrific work of science journalism and a valuable corrective to the latest wave of immigration hysteria sweeping Western nations.
