In this series of vivid and moving profiles, Kramer tells the story of four families: French-Algerian refugees in a Provencal village, nearly deranged by war and loneliness- Uganda Asians who were forced to flee the prosperity of their homes for a London workers borough when Idi Amin came to power- a Yugoslav peasant working in a Swedish factory for eight years to earn the money to build a house in his native village- and a bickering couple in the Umbrian countryside of Italy, whose main argument centers around Communism. In these fascinating portraits, Jane Kramer defines the people who are drastically altering the society we know as Europe.
