Since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1989, 50 to 100 million people have been displaced from their homes, the largest such migration in history, according to Fritz, a correspondent for the Los Angeles Times. Uprooted by civil war, ethnic strife, or economic conditions, some are displaced within their own borders, and many others have left their home countries entirely. Fritz presents stories of individuals he has interviewed over the past decade. They include East Germans fleeing west, gypsies, Kurds, and refugees from the Yugoslav War, the Iraq-Kuwait War, and the conflicts in Liberia and Rwanda. A surprising number converged on Germany, which at first welcomed them but later closed its borders when too many refugees began to strain social and support systems. Other accounts describe the conditions in refugee camps. The stories are effectively told, but ultimately the book lacks analysis, leaving the reader feeling helpless rather than inspired. Popular collections should nevertheless consider.
