Mass Migration Under Sail: European Immigration to the Antebellum United States
By Raymond L. Cohn

Cambridge University Press, 270 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0521513227, $81.77

Paperback, ISBN: 0521182484, $29.99, 272 pp.

Book Description: Dr. Cohn provides an in-depth and comprehensive analysis of the economic history of European immigration to the antebellum United States, using and evaluating the available data as well as presenting new data. This analysis centers on immigration from the three most important source countries - Ireland, Germany, and Great Britain - and examines the volume of immigration, how many individuals came from each country during the antebellum period, and why those numbers increased. The book also analyzes where they came from within each country; who chose to immigrate; the immigrants' trip to the United States, including estimates of mortality on the Atlantic crossing; the jobs obtained in the United States by the immigrants, along with their geographic location; and the economic effects of immigration on both the immigrants and the antebellum United States. No other book examines so many different economic aspects of antebellum immigration.


Against the Flow: Wading Through Eastern Europe
By Tom Fort

Random House UK, 308 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 1846055687, $21.24

Paperback, ISBN: 0099533421, $14.78, 316 pp.

Kindle, ASIN: B003SE75UI, File Size: 1716 KB, $9.63, 308 pp.

Book Description: Twenty years ago, Tom Fort drove his little red car onto the ferry at Felixstowe, bound for all points east. Eastern Europe was still a faraway place, just emerging from its half-century of waking nightmare, blinking, injured, full of fears but importantly full of hope, as well. Things were different then. Czechoslovakia was still Czechoslovakia, Russia was the USSR, and the Warsaw Pact had not formally dissolved. But what did exist then, as they do now, were the rivers: the nations' lifeblood. It was along and by these rivers that Fort traveled around Eastern Europe meeting its people and immersing himself in its culture. Since that trip, much has changed. In more recent years around one million Poles have settled in Britain. Fort's local paper has a Polish edition, his supermarket has a full range of Polish bread, sausage, and beer, and an influx of Polish businesses opened in his town center. And it's not just the Poles, his gym has a Lithuanian trainer and the woman who cuts his
hair is from Hungary. As a tide of people began to leave Eastern Europe and settle in the UK, Tom Fort started to wonder about what they were leaving behind and whether the friends he had made all those years ago remained. And so, he decided to make the journey again, traveling against the flow of the steady human stream to explore once familiar places. As he did so, many began to return as the recession took hold of Western Europe. Tom was keen to find out what had changed and how the places, people, and way of life had moved on—and of course fit in a spot of fishing along the way.


The Migration of Indian Human Capital: The Ebb and Flow of Indian Professionals in Southeast Asia
By Faizal bin Yahya and Arunajeet Kaur

Routledge, 256 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0415481082, $140.00

Kindle, ASIN: B004OBZT6G, File Size: 1832 KB, $112.00, 256 pp.

Book Description: In an increasingly globalised world manifested in greater economic integration, human capital is an important factor. One of the key sources of human capital to the global economy is India, and the main destinations for Indian professionals has been Western developed economies, the Middle East and Gulf regions and East and Southeast Asia.

Southeast Asia as a region has close historical, social and cultural linkages with India, and India has undertaken a number of initiatives under its "Look East" policy (LEP) to enhance ties with the Southeast Asian region. This book examines the trends and motivations of human capital flows from India into this region. Focusing in particular on Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand, the book provides an analysis of Indian labour in a variety of sectors, including information technology (IT) sector, academia, banking, oil and gas. Based on empirical data, the book provides an analysis of current trends in the flow of human capital from India to Southeast Asia. It will be of interest to policy makers, businessmen, students, analysts and academics in the field of Asian studies, foreign relations, human capital and labour migration.


Migration in the 21st Century: Rights, Outcomes, and Policy
By Thomas N. Maloney and Kim Korinek

Routledge, 304 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0415779146, $109.94

Kindle, ASIN: B004OBZY8Y, File Size: 1094 KB, $98.95, 304 pp.

Book Description: In this volume, we examine the challenges and opportunities created by global migration at the start of the 21st century. Our focus extends beyond economic impact to questions of international law, human rights, and social and political incorporation. We examine immigrant outcomes and policy questions at the global, national, and local levels. Our primary purpose is to connect ethical, legal, and social science scholarship from a variety of disciplines in order to raise questions and generate new insights regarding patterns of migration and the design of useful policy.

While the book incorporates studies of the evolution of immigration law globally and over the very long term, as well as considerations of the magnitude and determinants of immigrant flows at the global level, it places particular emphasis on the growth of immigration to the United States in the 1990s and early 2000s and provides new insights on the complex relationships between federal and state politics and regulation, popular misconceptions about the economic and social impacts of immigration, and the status of 'undocumented' immigrants.


The Contested Politics of Mobility: Borderzones and Irregularity
Edited by Vicki Squire

Routledge, 256 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0415584612, $114.94

Kindle, ASIN: B004OBZWBI, File Size: 604 KB, $100.00, 256 pp.

Book Description: Irregular migration has emerged as an issue of intensive political debate and governmental practice over recent years.

Critically intervening in debates around the governing of irregular migration, The Contested Politics of Mobility explores the politics of mobility through what is defined as an ‘analytic of irregularity’. It brings together authors who address issues of mobility and irregularity from a range of distinct perspectives, to focus on the politics of control as well as the politics of migration. The volume develops an account of irregularity as a produced, ambivalent and contested socio-political condition, showing how this is activated through wide-ranging ‘borderzones’ that pull between migration and control. Covering cases from across contemporary North America and Europe and examining a range of control mechanisms, such as biometrics, deportation and workplace raiding, the volume refuses the term ‘illegal’ to describe movements of people across borders. In so doing, it highlights the complexity of relations between different regions and between a politics of migration and a politics control, and makes a timely intervention in the intersecting fields of critical citizenship, migration and security studies.

This book will be of interest to students and scholars of politics, international relations, sociology, migration and law.


Why Americans Don't Join the Party: Race, Immigration, and the Failure (of Political Parties) to Engage the Electorate
By Zoltan L. Hajnal and Taeku Lee

Princeton University Press, 344 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0691148783, $70.49

Paperback, ISBN: 0691148791, $23.59

Book Description: Two trends are dramatically altering the American political landscape: growing immigration and the rising prominence of independent and nonpartisan voters. Examining partisan attachments across the four primary racial groups in the United States, this book offers the first sustained and systematic account of how race and immigration today influence the relationship that Americans have--or fail to have--with the Democratic and Republican parties. Zoltan Hajnal and Taeku Lee contend that partisanship is shaped by three factors--identity, ideology, and information--and they show that African Americans, Asian Americans, Latinos, and whites respond to these factors in distinct ways.

The book explores why so many Americans--in particular, Latinos and Asians--fail to develop ties to either major party, why African Americans feel locked into a particular party, and why some white Americans are shut out by ideologically polarized party competition. Through extensive analysis, the authors demonstrate that when the Democratic and Republican parties fail to raise political awareness, to engage deeply held political convictions, or to affirm primary group attachments, nonpartisanship becomes a rationally adaptive response. By developing a model of partisanship that explicitly considers America's new racial diversity and evolving nonpartisanship, this book provides the Democratic and Republican parties and other political stakeholders with the means and motivation to more fully engage the diverse range of Americans who remain outside the partisan fray.


The Third Asiatic Invasion: Empire and Migration in Filipino America, 1898-1946
By Rick Baldoz

NYU Press, 336 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0814791085, $70.49

Paperback, ISBN: 0814791093, $20.10

Kindle, ASIN: B004NIH684, File Size: 624 KB, $9.99, 336 pp.

Book Description: The first half of the twentieth century witnessed a wave of Filipino immigration to the United States, following in the footsteps of earlier Chinese and Japanese immigrants, the first and second “Asiatic invasions.” Perceived as alien because of their Asian ethnicity yet legally defined as American nationals granted more rights than other immigrants, Filipino American national identity was built upon the shifting sands of contradiction, ambiguity, and hostility.

Rick Baldoz explores the complex relationship between Filipinos and the U.S. by looking at the politics of immigration, race, and citizenship on both sides of the Philippine-American divide: internationally through an examination of American imperial ascendancy and domestically through an exploration of the social formation of Filipino communities in the United States. He reveals how American practices of racial exclusion repeatedly collided with the imperatives of U.S. overseas expansion. A unique portrait of the Filipino American experience, The Third Asiatic Invasion links the Filipino experience to that of Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, Chinese and Native Americans, among others, revealing how the politics of exclusion played out over time against different population groups.

Weaving together an impressive range of materials--including newspapers, government reports, legal documents and archival sources—into a seamless narrative, Baldoz illustrates how the quixotic status of Filipinos played a significant role in transforming the politics of race, immigration and nationality in the United States.


Integration and Inclusion of Newcomers and Minorities Across Canada
By John Biles, Meyer Burstein and Jim Frideres

McGill-Queen's University Press, 250 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 1553392914, $85.00

Paperback, ISBN: 1553392906, $39.95

Product Description: Building welcoming communities is as much a local project as a national one. This volume explores the activities of provincial and municipal governments, as well as a range of other important local societal players. Case studies of each of the provinces, as well as the territories, are included, as are chapters on the history of federal-provincial cooperation in immigration, and the development of provincial multiculturalism policies and programs. Each chapter provides an overview of immigration, settlement and diversity in the province or territory, an examination of the key players in the integration and inclusion of newcomers and minorities, and a discussion of specific challenges. This allows comparisons and an exploratory mapping of the range of participants and the investments - both human and financial - that have been made in the integration and inclusion of newcomers and minorities at the provincial level.


Identity, Belonging and Migration
By Gerard Delanty

Liverpool University Press, 256 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 1846311187, $56.04

Paperback, ISBN: 1846316898, $21.60

Product Description: This volume addresses the question of migration in Europe. It is concerned with the extent to which racism and anti-immigration discourse has been to some extent normalised and 'democratised' in European and national political discourses. Mainstream political parties are espousing increasingly coercive policies and frequently attempting to legitimate such approaches via nationalist-populist slogans and coded forms of racism. "Identity, Belonging and Migration" shows that that liberalism is not enough to oppose the disparate and diffuse xenophobia and racism faced by many migrants today and calls for new conceptions of anti-racism within and beyond the state. The book is divided into three parts and organised around a theoretical framework for understanding migration, belonging, and exclusion, which is subsequently developed through discussions of state and structural discrimination as well as a series of thematic case studies. In drawing on a range of rich and original data, this timely volume makes an important contribution to discussions on migration in Europe.


Security, Insecurity and Migration in Europe
By Gabriella Lazaridis

Ashgate, 314 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 1409409201, $124.95

Product Description: Having often been framed in terms of security concerns, migration issues have simultaneously given rise to issues of insecurity: on the one hand, security of borders, political, societal and economic security/insecurity in the host country; one the other, social, legal and economic concerns about human security, with regard to both EU citizens and migrants entering Europe. In terms of state security, migration is a core target of increasingly globally networked surveillance capabilities, whilst with respect to human security, it exposes the gap between the protections that migrants formally enjoy under international law and the realities they experience as they travel and work across different countries. Drawing on the latest research from across the EU, "Security, Insecurity and Migration" explores the concerns of states with regard to migration and the need to protect the fundamental rights of migrants. An interdisciplinary examination of the issues of security and insecurity raised by migration for states, their citizens and migrants themselves, this book will be of interest to scholars of politics, sociology and geography researching migration, race and ethnicity, human and state security and EU politics and policy.


Migration and the New Technological Borders of Europe
Edited by Huub Dijstelbloem and Albert Meijer

Palgrave Macmillan, 208 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0230278469, $69.73

Product Description: European borders that aim to control migration and mobility increasingly rely on technology to distinguish between citizens and aliens. This book explores new tensions in Europe between states and citizens, and between politics, technology and human rights.


Prioritizing Integration: The Transatlantic Council on Migration
By Bertelsmann Stiftung

Bertelsmann Foundation Publishers, 220 pp.

Paperback, ISBN: 3867930716, $25.00

Product Description: The global recession is having a major impact on immigrant integration. With cuts in public budgets and a rise in anti-immigrant sentiment on both sides of the Atlantic, many governments have made short-term decisions responding to the economic crisis that will have longterm implications for immigrants and the broader society. Prioritizing Integration assesses where immigrants have lost ground-using evidence such as levels of funding for educational programs, employment rates, trends toward protectionism, public opinion, and levels of discrimination. It also considers how immigrants may have benefited from the crisis. This systematic look at where and how immigrants have been affected by the recession concludes with a set of priorities for the integration-related investments national and local governments should be making in the coming decade. These investments are designed to boost economic competitiveness and improve social cohesion.
