America holds a truly unique place in world history when it come to the issue of immigration, but no country is immune from the complications that come with a large exodus or emigration across their boarders.

Paul Collier looks at some of these complications in his new book, "Exodus: Immigration and Multiculturalism in the 21st Century." Along the way, he argues that limiting immigration might be beneficial to the countries that welcome immigrants, the countries that lose their citizens to emigration, and to immigrants themselves.
