A Seventh Man

paperback    ISBN 13: 9781844676491 | ISBN 10: 1844676498

A new edition of this seminal exploration of migrant workers.

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.
