XenophobiaFear and rejection of the foreigner
Durval Muniz de Albuquerque Junior
This book deals with one of the greatest problems of our day: xenophobia, or fear of the foreign and the foreigner. In an increasingly globalized world, large numbers of people relocate to new countries and continents in search of opportunity and fleeing situations of war and poverty. This movement provokes tensions between these contemporary nomads, who wander the globe in search of a new life, and the populations and places who receive them. The book seeks to approach various dimensions of the problem and help educators approach these issues in the classroom.
