Look around: the largest migration in human history is under way. For the first time ever, more people are living in cities than in rural areas. Between 2007 and 2050, the world??s cities will have absorbed 3.1 billion people. Urbanization is the mass movement that will change our world during the twenty-first century, and the ??arrival city? is where it is taking place.
 
The arrival city exists on the outskirts of the metropolis, in the slums, or in the suburbs; the American version is New York??s Lower East Side of a century ago or today??s Herndon County, Virginia. These are the places where newcomers try to establish new lives and to integrate themselves socially and economically. Their goal is to build communities, to save and invest, and, hopefully, move out, making room for the next wave of migrants. For some, success is years away; for others, it will never come at all.
 
As vibrant places of exchange, arrival cities have long been indicators of social health. Whether it??s Paris in 1789 or Tehran in 1978, whenever migrant populations are systematically ignored, we should expect violence and extremism. But, as the award-winning journalist Doug Saunders demonstrates, when we make proper investments in our arrival cities??through transportation, education, security, and citizenship??a prosperous middle class develops.
 
Saunders takes us on a tour of these vital centers, from Maryland to Shenzhen, from the favelas of Rio to the shantytowns of Mumbai, from Los Angeles to Nairobi. He uncovers the stories??both inspiring and heartbreaking??of the people who live there, and he shows us how the life or death of our arrival cities will determine

Saunders shed light on a world I knew nothing about. The human impulse to better our situation is a powerful motivator. ( )
  BBrookes | Nov 29, 2023 |
Thought provoking nonfiction about the value and need for what first appear to be slums surrounding the huge urban centers of the third world. This is one that's stuck with me. ( )

This book is so well written I couldn't put it down. Everyone should read this book. No one can stop the flow of immigration. All you can do is insure that the immigrants have the best possible social services possible. They are our future tax payers who are going to pay for your medicare and social security. ( )

Favela’s, bustees, shantytowns, bidonvilles, slums of barrio’s in de ontwikkelingslanden en immigrantenwijken, etnische buurten, banlieues difficiles, chinatowns, Little India’s of migrant suburbs van de rijke landen, met hun geïmproviseerde woningen bieden ze een troosteloze aanblik. (...)
Doug Saunders vertelt het verhaal van steden van aankomst over de hele wereld. Hij laat ons zien hoe ze ontstaan zijn en zich ontwikkelen, en verheldert de factoren die bijdragen tot hun succes of mislukking. (...)
Een echte eye-opener en niet zomaar een aanrader, maar een must!

A very interesting perspective on how rural to urban migration is transforming cities and the world. The author shares often non-intuitive deas about how both the built urban form and government policy can contribute to making these "arrival cities" succeed or fail. The consequences of failed arrival cities are often violence and extremism, all the more tragic as Saunders asserts most of the inhabitants simply want the ability to step up the economic ladder, that neither their cultures nor their economic conditions predispose them to violence; instead it's physical, cultural and economic isolation from the mainstream of the societies they're trying to join that creates an unstable situation. One of the fundamental elements of questioning our assumptions is that Saunders says we should see arrival city "slums" not as filthy traps of poverty, but as transition zones where the very poor gain a foodhold in the city, on their way to the middle class.

The approach many cities take in demolishing and fighting against their slums reminded me in a way of how in Peter Heather's conception in The Fall of the Roman Empire the Romans were unable to appreciate what were essentially economic migrants wanting to join the mainstream of Roman society, instead casting them out and ultimately leading to the empire itself failing.

It's interesting that many of the conclusions about the best built urban form for the arrival city that Saunders documents - 5 storey buildings densely packed, with ground-level retail and flexible zoning, are the same prescriptions for general urban vibrancy that Jan Gehl puts forward based on his years of experience, in Cities for People.

This book may be as important as “Death and Life of Great American Cities,” but unlike it you will probably not wish to read “Arrival City” twice.
 
This may be the best popular book on cities since Jane Jacobs's The Death and Life of Great American Cities half a century ago. Certainly, it shares the same optimism about human aspiration amid overcrowded buildings and unplanned urban jungles, and the same plea for planners to help rather than stifle those dreams.
