"A meticulously researched and deeply felt corrective to the public narrative of who today’s migrants are, why they are coming, and what economic and historical forces have propelled them from their homes into faraway lands... This Land Is Our Land reads like an impassioned survey course on migration, laying bare the origins of mass migration in searing clarity... well argued, cathartic and abundantly sourced." (The New York Times Book Review)

"There are many mic-drop moments and eminently quotable lines... [This Land Is Our Land] is a blistering argument that earns its place in this emotional debate." (Wall Street Journal)

"Mehta’s book is a brilliant, deliberately political rebuff to the increasingly popular view that immigrants are a problem... It’s a very powerful book, but it also has a wit about it, which makes it very attractive." (Guardian)

"A plea from the heart for a radical re-evaluation of the West’s treatment of those on the move… Mehta does not pull any punches [he] knows exactly how to get your attentionand how to have you squirming in your seat." (New Internationalist)

"An intelligent, well-reasoned case for freedom of movement in an era of walls and fences." (Kirkus Reviews)
