The most recent major source on medical migration from South Africa is this study by Peter Arnold. The book is thoroughly researched with an extensive literature review, and it is profusely illustrated with graphs and figures. However, it is the insights and understanding of South Africa's unique political and ethnic make-up that make this interesting reading and a must-have source for those interested in medical migration. See 'From the Editor' in this issue of the SAMJ for further details and comments on this unfortunate--and ongoing--trend.
