Although displacement is often associated with conflict zones, millions of people are resettled yearly in the name of development and progress. They endure social and cultural disruption as well as economic upheaval, and their voices are rarely heard. This groundbreaking volume collects oral histories that reveal the challenges they face, such as the loss of cultural identity, shifting social roles, and fractured family relationships. Though full of regret and loss, these accounts reveal incredible resourcefulness and resilience in the face of profound change. Together, they form a crucial reminder of development's often devastating human cost.
