Vote Thieves: Illegal Immigration, Redistricting, and Presidential Elections
By Orlando J. Rodriguez

Potomac Books Inc., 192 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 1597976717, $17.79
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1597976717/centerforimmigra

Book Description: Every ten years political representation in the U.S.House of Representatives is redistributed (reapportioned) among the fifty states.The process began anew with the 2010 census, which is counting the nation’s population as the basis for reapportionment.The decennial census has a history wrought with failures and inaccurate counts.

In Vote Thieves, geographer Orlando J. Rodriguez shows how our current method of apportionment creates an incentive for illegal immigration and polarizes our political system. Historically it caused the end of the Federalist Party, bolstered slavery, disenfranchised African Americans after Reconstruction, fostered segregation in the South, denied voting rights to women, and disenfranchised voters in the presidential election of 2000.

Since 1989, six congressional bills have attempted to change the population basis for apportionment; none passed. Currently under review in Congress, House Joint Resolution 53 would amend the Constitution to include only citizens in the apportionment base.The 2008 presidential platform of the Republican Party included a similar call to change the apportionment basis.

This issue affects all U.S. residents—legal and illegal alike.Recent history has triggered a growing suspicion among Americans that their political system is flawed. Vote Thieves explains a singular flaw that voters suspect but cannot put in plain words, and gives them the information they need to petition for a more responsive political system.

Peoplequake: Mass Migration, Ageing Nations and the Coming Population Crash

Paperback, ISBN: 190581139X, $12.17
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/190581139X/centerforimmigra

Book Description: Wherever we look, population is the driver of the most toxic issues on the political agenda. But the population bomb is being defused. Half the world's women are having two children or fewer. Within a generation, the world's population will be falling. And we will all be getting very old. So should we welcome the return to centre stage of the tribal elders? Or is humanity facing a fate worse than environmental apocalypse? Brilliant, heretical and accessible to all, Fred Pearce takes on the matter that is fundamental to who we are and how we live, confronting our demographic demons.

Crossing and Controlling Borders: Immigration Policies and Their Impact on Migrants' Journeys
By Mechthild Baumann, Astrid Lorenz, and Kerstin Rosenow

Budrich UniPress Ltd., 280 pp.

Paperback, ISBN: 3940755761, $99.95
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/3940755761/centerforimmigra

Book Description: This volume highlights the impact of border controls on migrants' journeys in two major areas of immigration: the European Union and the United States. In order to show the linkages between border control policies and migratory practices, the book combines empirical insights from ethnography with approaches from political science. Describing migrants' realities reveals that the impact of border control policies goes beyond the actual border area affecting many lives and states.

Latinos in the Midwest
Edited by Ruben O. Martinez

Michigan State University Press, 450 pp.

Paperback, ISBN: 0870139967, $23.07
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0870139967/centerforimmigra

Book Description: Over the past twenty years, the Latino population in the Midwest has grown rapidly, both in urban and rural areas. As elsewhere in the country, shifting demographics in the region have given rise to controversy and mixed reception. Where some communities have greeted Latinos openly, others have been more guarded. Despite their increasing presence, Latinos remain the most marginalized major population group in the country. In coming years, the projected growth of this population will require greater attention from policymakers concerned with helping to incorporate them into the nation’s core institutions. This eye-opening collection of essays examines the many ways in which an increase in the Latino population has impacted the Midwest — culturally, economically, educationally, and politically. Drawing on studies, personal histories, legal rulings, and other sources, this book takes an interdisciplinary approach to an increasingly important topic in American society and offers a glimpse into the nation’s demographic future.

Hidden in the Heartland: The New Wave of Immigrants and the Challenge to America
By Nancy Brown Diggs

Michigan State University Press, 280 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0870139975, $19.77
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0870139975/centerforimmigra

Book Description: As other teens returned home from school, thirteen-year-old José Silva headed for work at a restaurant, where he would remain until 2:00 a.m. Francisca Herrera, a tomato picker, was exposed to pesticides while she was pregnant and gave birth to a baby without arms or legs. Silva and Herrera immigrated illegally to the United States, and their experiences are far from unique. In this comprehensive, balanced overview of the immigration crisis, Nancy Brown Diggs examines the abusive, unethical conditions under which many immigrants work, and explores how what was once a border problem now extends throughout the country. Drawing from a wide spectrum of sources, Hidden in the Heartland demonstrates how the current situation is untenable for both illegal immigrants and American citizens. A vivid portrait of the immigration crisis, the book makes a passionate case for confronting this major human rights issue — a threat to the very unity of the country.

Out of Albania: From Crisis Migration to Social Inclusion in Italy

Berghahn Books, 304 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 1845455444, $90.00
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1845455444/centerforimmigra

Paperback, ISBN: 0857451642, $34.95, 294 pp.
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0857451642/centerforimmigra

Book Description: "I strongly believe that this book will soon become a 'standard reference' in studies of Albanian society, Albanian migration, immigration to Italy (and possibly to Greece)." * Panos Hatziprokopiou Analysing the dynamics of the post-1990 Albanian migration to Italy, this book is the first major study of one of Europe's newest, most dramatic yet least understood migrations. It takes a close look at migrants' employment, housing and social exclusion in Italy, as well as the process of return migration to Albania. The research described in the book challenges the pervasive stereotype of the "bad Albanian" and, through in-depth fieldwork on Albanian communities in Italy and back in Albania, provides rich insights into the Albanian experience of migration, settlement and return in both their positive and their negative aspects.

Childhood and Migration in Europe
By Caitríona Ní Laoire, Fina Carpena-Mendez, Naomi Tyrrell, and Allen White

Ashgate, 224 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 140940109X, $99.95
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/140940109X/centerforimmigra

Book Description: "Childhood and Migration in Europe" explores the under-researched and often misunderstood worlds of migrant children and young people, drawing on extensive empirical research with children and young people from diverse migrant backgrounds living in a rapidly changing European society. Through in-depth exploration and analysis of the experiences of children who moved to Ireland in the first decade of the 21st century, it addresses the tendency of migration research and policy to overlook the presence of children in migratory flows. Challenging dominant adult-centric perspectives on contemporary global migration flows and presenting understandings of the lives of migrant children and young people from their own experiences, this book presents a detailed exploration of children's lives in four different migrant populations in Ireland. With a unique comparative perspective, "Childhood and Migration in Europe" advances upon current conceptualisations of migration and integration by
interrogating accepted views of migrant children and focusing on children's own voices and experiences. It challenges the prevailing assimilationist discourses underlying much existing research and policy, which often construct migrant children as deficient in different ways and in need of 'being integrated'.

The Political Economy of Managed Migration: Nonstate Actors, Europeanization, and the Politics of Designing Migration Policies
By Georg Menz

Oxford University Press, USA, 264 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0199533881, $90.00
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0199533881/centerforimmigra

Paperback, ISBN: 0199593299, $30.61, 320 pp.
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0199593299/centerforimmigra

Kindle: Page Numbers Source ISBN: 0199533881, ASIN: B002Y28MV6, $27.55

Book Description: European governments have re-discovered labor migration, but are eager to be perceived as controlling unsolicited forms of migration, especially through asylum and family reunion. The emerging paradigm of managed migration combines the construction of more permissive channels for desirable and actively recruited labor migrants with ever more restrictive approaches towards asylum seekers. Non-state actors, especially employer organizations, trade unions, and humanitarian non-governmental organizations, attempt to shape regulatory measures, but their success varies depending on organizational characteristics. Labor market interest associations' lobbying strategies regarding quantities and skill profile of labor migrants will be influenced by the respective system of political economy they are embedded in. Trade unions are generally supportive of well-managed labor recruitment strategies. But migration policy-making also proceeds at the European Union (EU) level. While national actors
seek to upload their national model as a blueprint for future EU policy to avoid costly adaptation, top-down Europeanization is re-casting national regulation in important ways, notwithstanding highly divergent national regulatory philosophies.

Based on field work in and analysis of primary documents from six European countries (France, Italy, United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, and Poland), The Political Economy of Managed Migration makes an important contribution to the study of a rapidly Europeanized policy domain. Combining insights from the literature on comparative political economy, Europeanization, and migration studies, the book makes important contributions to all three, while demonstrating how migration policy can be fruitfully studied by employing tools from mainstream political science, rather than treating it as a distinct subfield.

Global Connections and Emerging Inequalities in Europe: Perspectives on Poverty and Transnational Migration
By Deema Kaneff

Anthem Press India, 194 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0857289691, $85.00
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1456452878/centerforimmigra

Book Description: The book explores connections between poverty and migration in the context of the expansion of neoliberalism in Europe, examining these global concerns from a local perspective. The last decade has witnessed a massive, perhaps unprecedented, movement of people across Europe. Some of the dislocated are victims of war, but even greater numbers are casualties of the economic reforms which were implemented after the collapse of socialism in eastern Europe, and some 10-15 years earlier in western Europe. As this volume shows, people do not move in only one direction, from economically weaker to stronger regions; rather, movement takes place both into and out of recently created 'backwaters'. Such movements reflect the dynamic and shifting form of an ever-changing Europe, where people are responding to new opportunities for mobility, and to local inequalities resulting from political changes and economic reforms. As people seek new opportunities, movement itself becomes part of the process of generating new inequalities between regions and nations. Symbolically and objectively the map of Europe is being redrawn. The chapters in this collection give vivid examples of not only the process of re-mapping, but also of people’s strong sense of local 'place' and their participation in global movements.

Immigration and Nation Building: Australia and Israel Compared

Edward Elgar Pub., 208 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 1849800634, $99.95

Book Description: This insightful study explores the growth of the two largest post-industrial immigrant nations since the Second World War - Australia and Israel. Almost one in four Australians were born outside the country, more than one in three Israelis.

Immigration and Nation Building brings a comparative approach to the discussion of patterns of immigration, legal structures, the labour market, civil society, public opinion, and integration of the second generation. The result is a thought provoking analysis of the distinctive and universal in the development of two immigrant nations.

By comparing the experiences of these two countries, this ground-breaking study of immigration and its impact will appeal to policy analysts and researchers in government and academia, as well as students in the areas of sociology, politics, economics and history.
