A Seventh Man [9781844676491]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Why does the Western world look to migrant laborers to perform the most menial tasks? What compels people to leave their homes and accept this humiliating situation? In A Seventh Man, John Berger and Jean Mohr come to grips with what it is to be a migrant worker--the material circumstances and the inner experience--and, in doing so, reveal how the migrant is not so much on the margins of modern life, but absolutely central to it. First published in 1975, this finely wrought exploration remains as urgent as ever, presenting a mode of living that pervades the countries of the West and yet is excluded from much of its culture.
AUTHOR: John Berger's many books include Ways of Seeing, the fiction trilogy Into Their Labours, Here Is Where We Meet, the Booker-prize winning novel G, Hold Everything Dear and the Man Booker-longlisted From A to X. Jean Mohr's longstanding collaboration with John Berger has produced five books, including A Fortunate Man. Among his other works are After the Last Sky (with Edward Said) and, most recently, Side by Side or Face to Face. He lives in Geneva, Switzerland.
