The Birthright Lottery: Citizenship and Global Inequality
By Ayelet Shachar

Harvard University Press, 290 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0674032713, $28.76

Book Description: The vast majority of the global population acquires citizenship purely by accidental circumstances of birth. There is little doubt that securing membership status in a given state bequeaths to some a world filled with opportunity and condemns others to a life with little hope. Gaining privileges by such arbitrary criteria as one’s birthplace is discredited in virtually all fields of public life, yet birthright entitlements still dominate our laws when it comes to allotting membership in a state.

In The Birthright Lottery, Ayelet Shachar argues that birthright citizenship in an affluent society can be thought of as a form of property inheritance: that is, a valuable entitlement transmitted by law to a restricted group of recipients under conditions that perpetuate the transfer of this prerogative to their heirs. She deploys this fresh perspective to establish that nations need to expand their membership boundaries beyond outdated notions of blood-and-soil in sculpting the body politic. Located at the intersection of law, economics, and political philosophy, The Birthright Lottery further advocates redistributional obligations on those benefiting from the inheritance of membership, with the aim of ameliorating its most glaring opportunity inequalities.


Borderline Americans: Racial Division and Labor War in the Arizona Borderlands
By Katherine Benton-Cohen

Harvard University Press, 384 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0674032772, $19.77

Book Description: It was in Cochise County that the Earps and Clantons fought, Geronimo surrendered, and Wheeler led the infamous Bisbee Deportation, and it is where private militias patrol for undocumented migrants today. These dramatic events animate the rich story of the Arizona borderlands, where people of nearly every nationality—drawn by “free” land or by jobs in the copper mines—grappled with questions of race and national identity. Benton-Cohen explores the daily lives and shifting racial boundaries between groups as disparate as Apache resistance fighters, Chinese merchants, Mexican-American homesteaders, Midwestern dry farmers, Mormon polygamists, Serbian miners, New York mine managers, and Anglo women reformers.

Racial categories once blurry grew sharper as industrial mining dominated the region. Ideas about home, family, work and wages, manhood and womanhood all shaped how people thought about race. Mexicans were legally white, but were they suitable marriage partners for “Americans”? Why were Italian miners described as living “as no white man can”? By showing the multiple possibilities for racial meanings in America, Benton-Cohen’s insightful and informative work challenges our assumptions about race and national identity.


The Immigration Crisis: Immigrants, Aliens, and the Bible
By James K. Hoffmeier

Crossway Books, 176 pp.

Paperback, ISBN: 1433506076, $10.19

Book Description: An estimated twelve to fifteen million people now reside illegally in the United States, posing a major social and legal challenge to the nation. Americans are divided over the best course of action in dealing with these illegal immigrants, and Christians are using the Bible to stake out different positions.

The Immigration Crisis addresses this complex issue through a comprehensive look at the Bible. By a careful study of relevant materials in the Old Testament, in combination with archaeological and sociological materials, the author forms a clear definition of an alien in Israelite society. This understanding is an important starting point in the current debate.

The book concludes by suggesting how the Bible might assist Christians in thinking about the problem of legal and illegal immigrants, and in developing the implications of the biblical teaching for public policy.


Border Games: Policing the U.S.-Mexico Divide
By Peter Andreas

Cornell University Press, 180 pp.

Paperback, ISBN: 0801475406, $14.36

Hardcover, ISBN: 0801437962, $59.95, 158 pp.

Book Description: In an updated and expanded edition of his essential 2000 book about shifts in how borders are perceived and patrolled, Peter Andreas brings the story into the present day. The second edition of Border Games places the continued sharp escalation of border policing in the context of a transformed post-September 11 security environment. As Andreas demonstrates, in some ways it is still the same old border game-but more difficult to manage, with more players, played out on a bigger stage, and with higher stakes and collateral damage. Andreas continues to help readers understand the changing practice and politics of policing national boundaries in the twenty-first century.


The Immigrant Dream Inside the Struggle: A closer look at the Immigrant subgroup; our hopes, struggles, challenges, and dreams
By Hugo D Perez

BookSurge Publishing, 242 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 1439227160, $14.99

Book Description: The issue of illegal immigration has generated a lot of interest in recent years both from those who are in favor of an immigration reform and those who are against it. While this debate continues to go on many stories including mine surfaced about those who reside here illegally in hopes of that opportunity to remain here documented. This book examines the priorities, setbacks, goals, dreams, hopes and struggles of those of the Latino/Immigrant community. It is my intent to provide a different perspective of our community both as an assimiliated resident as well as one who continues to be an outsider in terms of lack of legal documents. Integrated is my story of my intent to succeed in this country despite of my status; my identity crisis, my drive for a better future, my battle with stereotypes, living up to expectations, and my life as an undocumented immigrant in the United States. Along this journey, I also explored the status of a Latino in this country. What we need to do to become a political voice, to overcome our own expectations, gear ourselves towards a better future, and set better expectations for the upcoming generation. My journey as in immigrant in this country is both uplifting and motivational, but very much complex because of my status. My goal is to reach to those in our community who can make a difference now, and those who must do something to change the perspective of our group for a better tomorrow. We need to identified leaders for tomorrow who will lead us towards true change and prosperity. Latinos one day will be the biggest minority group in this country in terms of numbers. But what's the point of that if we don't become unified? We need better leadership. We need to change the perspective that society has placed on us. Will we continue to be at the bottom of the pyramid or will we strive for better opportunities? Education for our younger and upcoming generations must be a priority. For those who remain here undocumented and are hoping that congress will pass an immigration reform; we must also do our part: we need to learn the language, set different expectations for our children, change the negative sterotypes that our gruop holds so common. As an undocumented immigrant myself, all I ask from Congress is for that opportunity to contribute to this country in a manner that will set an example for many. While there are many of those who are wasting a golden opportunity by doing nothing to alter the perception of our group in a positive way, there are those who will. Of course, many of you have read about immigrants, the immigrant/latino community and so forth, but never like this, not in this form. I will not be biased, nor for or against immigrants. I wrote this book with the intent to bring out the misconceptions and misplaced labels that immigrants hold, as well as those negative traits that our group must change. The change for a better tomorrow starts now and it starts with us.


Importing Poverty?: Immigration and the Changing Face of Rural America
By Philip Martin

Yale University Press, 264 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0300139179, $39.21

Book Description: American agriculture employs some 2.5 million workers during a typical year, most for fewer than six months. Three fourths of these farm workers are immigrants, half are unauthorized, and most will leave seasonal farm work within a decade. What do these statistics mean for farmers, for laborers, for rural America?

This book addresses the question by reviewing what is happening on farms and in the towns and cities where immigrant farm workers settle with their families. Philip Martin finds that the business-labor model that has evolved in rural America is neither desirable nor sustainable. He proposes regularizing U.S. farm workers and rationalizing the farm labor market, an approach that will help American farmers stay globally competitive while also improving conditions for farm workers.


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

Cambridge University Press, 270 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0521513227, $85.00

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.


Immigration, Crime and Justice
By William McDonald

Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 260 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 1848554389, $124.95

Book Description: This volume examines the nexus between immigration and crime from all of the angles. It addresses not just the evidence regarding the criminality of immigrants but also the research on the victimization of immigrants; on human trafficking; domestic violence; the police handling of human trafficking; the exportation to crime problems via deportation; the vigilantes at the U.S. border; the role of the non-immigration police in the control of immigration; and, the criminalization of immigration policy.


Shattered Dreams, Broken Promises: The Cost of Coming to America
By Michael Viner

Phoenix Books; Pap/Com edition, 297 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 1597775371, $19.72, 285 pp.

Paperback, ISBN: 1597776025, $10.36

Book Description: Hundreds of thousands of women dream of escaping their harsh lives in Eastern Europe for the American Dream they know from movies and television. The chances that they will ever do so are slim. Michael Viner traveled throughout Eastern Europe to interview women of all ages and circumstances who say they are willing to do anything to get to America. What he found is that the cost is often sexual slavery, deception, prostitution, and horrible marriages. Poignant and insightful, Shattered Dreams exposes the dark side of seeking the dream these women cherish: the abuse, fear, lies, and cruelty so many must endure—and, for a few, the attainment of their elusive goal.


Human Rights Overboard: Seeking Asylum in Australia
By Linda Briskman, Susie Latham, and Chris Goddard

Scribe Publications Pty Ltd., 448 pp.

Paperback, ISBN: 1921372400, $22.76

Book Description: Drawing together for the first time the oral testimony and written submissions from the People’s Inquiry into Detention, this powerful and vital overview stands as an indictment of Australia’s refugee policy and demonstrates how social work can contribute to changing public perceptions and to challenging harsh policies that violate core human rights tenets. Following the wake of the Cornelia Rau scandal, this record depicts the establishment of the People’s Inquiry, documenting the heartbreaking evidence they reviewed regarding asylum seekers’ journeys to Australia and the lives of refugees during and after the determination process and detention. Clearly and comprehensively presented, this is a haunting journey guided by voices from every side of the fence—former and current immigration detainees, refugee advocates, lawyers, doctors, psychiatrists, and former detention and immigration staff. Taken together, their stories record a humanitarian disaster that sounds a warning to current and future policymakers, establishing a message that will resonate for years to come.


Bringing Outsiders in: Transatlantic Perspectives on Immigrant Political Incorporation
By Jennifer Hochschild and John Mollenkopf

Cornell University Press, 376 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0801448115, $79.95

Paperback, ISBN: 0801475147, $29.95

Book Description: For immigrants, politics can play a significant role in determining whether and how they assimilate. In Bringing Outsiders In, leading social scientists present individual cases and work toward a comparative synthesis of how immigrants affect—and are affected by—civic life on both sides of the Atlantic.

Just as in the United States, large immigrant minority communities have been emerging across Europe. While these communities usually make up less than one-tenth of national populations, they typically have a large presence in urban areas, sometimes approaching a majority. That immigrants can have an even greater political salience than their population might suggest has been demonstrated in recent years in places as diverse as Sweden and France. Attending to how local and national states encourage or discourage political participation, the authors assess the relative involvement of immigrants in a wide range of settings. Jennifer Hochschild and John Mollenkopf provide a context for the particular cases and comparisons and draw a set of analytic and empirical conclusions regarding incorporation.


Greek Diaspora and Migration Since 1700: Society, Politics and Culture
By Dimitris Tziovas

Ashgate Publishing, 280 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 0754666093, $114.95

Book Description: The Greek diaspora is one of the paradigmatic historical diasporas. Though some trace its origins to ancient Greek colonies, it is really a more modern phenomenon. Diaspora, exile and immigration represent three successive phases in Modern Greek history and they are useful vantage points from which to analyse changes in Greek society, politics and culture over the last three centuries. Embracing a wide range of case studies, this volume charts the role of territorial displacements as social and cultural agents from the eighteenth century to the present day and examines their impact on communities, politics, institutional attitudes and culture. By studying migratory trends the aim is to map out the transformation of Greece from a largely homogenous society with a high proportion of emigrants to a more diverse society inundated by immigrants after the end of the Cold War. The originality of this book lies in the bringing together of diaspora, exile and immigration and its focus on developments both inside and outside Greece.


God Needs No Passport: Immigrants and the Changing American Religious Landscape
By Peggy Levitt

New Press, 288 pp.

Paperback, ISBN: 1595584560, $14.21

Hardcover, ISBN: 1595581693, $17.79, 352 pp.

Book Description: Not since the era of Ellis Island have so many immigrants arrived on America’s shores. As in the past, native-born Americans continue to expect immigrants to assimilate; however, in an era of cheap international travel and the Internet, immigrants themselves are now able to keep one foot in their countries of origin, thereby confusing old assumptions about pluralism and American identity. And increasingly it is global religious institutions that enable immigrants to participate in two cultures at once—whether via religious services beamed in by satellite or through an expanding network of global religious organizations.

These multicultural religious immigrants, sociologist Peggy Levitt argues in this pathbreaking account, are changing the face of religious diversity in the United States, helping to make American religion just as global as U.S. corporations. In a book with stunning implications for today’s immigration debates—where commentators routinely refer to a “clash of civilizations”—Levitt shows that the new realities of religion and migration are subtly challenging the very definition of what it means to be an American. Filled with impressive original research and charts and statistics that “give an excellent overall view of the results of her thorough on-site research” (Library Journal ), God Needs No Passport reveals that American values are no longer just made in the U.S.A. but around the globe.


The Cubans of Union City: Immigrants and Exiles in a New Jersey Community
By Yolanda Prieto

Temple Univ Press, 224 pp.

Paperback, ISBN: 1592133002, $24.25

Hardcover, ISBN: 1592132995, $74.50

Book Description: As a result of the conflicts between Cuba and the United States, especially after 1959, Cubans immigrated in great numbers. Most stayed in Miami, but many headed north to Union City, making it second only to Miami in its concentration of Cubans. In The Cubans of Union City, Yolanda Prieto discusses why Cubans were drawn to this particular city and how the local economy and organizations developed. Central aspects of this story are the roles of women, religion, political culture, and the fact of exile itself. As a member of this community and a participant in many of its activities, Prieto speaks with special authority about its demographic uniqueness. Far from being a snapshot of the community, The Cubans of Union City conveys an ongoing research agenda extending over more than twenty years, from 1959 to the 1980s. As a long-term observer who was also a resident, Prieto offers a unique and insightful view of the dynamics of this community's evolution.


Getting Immigration Right: What Every American Needs to Know
By David Coates and Peter Siavelis

Potomac Books Inc., 304 pp.

Paperback, ISBN: 1597972657, $22.76

Hardcover, ISBN: 1597972649, $43.80

Book Description: Getting Immigration Right focuses on what is arguably the most important aspect of the current immigration debate: how best to understand and resolve illegal immigration from Mexico. The scale and character of illegal immigration is only one facet of the “immigration problem” currently before Congress and the president, but it is its most contentious and visible face. It is also the one part of the contemporary immigration story that attracts the most intense opposition, the most widely disseminated mythologies, and the most powerfully advocated solutions. What to do about illegal immigration from Mexico is a major political question of our time.

The book’s wide-ranging and timely discussion includes legal and non-Mexican immigration. It sets the context of immigration before exploring the job experiences of illegal immigrants and their quest for the American dream. The contributors then focus on the causes and consequences—economic and social—of immigration, both legal and otherwise, and vividly describe the Latino experiences of illegality, including crossing the border and living in fear of deportation. In addition, the reform of immigration law is discussed from three distinct viewpoints: one conservative, one liberal, and one libertarian. The volume closes with its editors’ own proposals for comprehensive immigration reform.


Remaking Home: Reconstructing Life, Place and Identity in Rome and Amsterdam
By Maja Korac

Berghahn Books, 184 pp.

Hardcover, ISBN: 1845453913, $56.83

Book Description: While the law has its just face, covered richly in millions of pages of scholarship, in this book the authors hone in on uses of the rule of law as an instrument that legitimizes exploitative activity. The transformation of the rule of law ideal, into an imperial rule of law, has accompanied the move from an ideal of social justice and solidarity towards the capitalist requirements of efficiency and competition. The book is thus fundamentally a comparison of the role of the rule of law in practices of violent extraction - plunder - by stronger international political actors victimizing weaker ones, in two recent phases of the history of international human relationship: Euro-American colonialism and the present days of neo-liberal messianic expansions.


The Jews of Libya: Coexistence, Persecution, Resettlement
By Maurice Roumani

Sussex Academic Press, 320 pp.

Paperback, ISBN: 1845193679, $33.08

Book Description: This book investigates the transformative period in the history of the Jews of Libya (1938-52), a period crucial to understanding Libyan Jewry's evolution into a community playing significant roles in Israel, Italy and in relation with Qaddhafi's Libya. Against a background of a reform conscious Ottoman administration (1835-1911) and subsequent stirrings of modernisation under Italian colonial influence (1911-43), the Jews of Libya began to experience rapid change following the application of fascist racial laws of 1938, the onset of war-related calamities and violent expressions of Libyan pan-Arabism, culminating in mass migration to Israel in the period 1949-52. By focusing on key socio-economic and political dimensions of this process, the author reveals the capacity of Libyan Jewry to adapt to and integrate into new environments without losing its unique and historical traditions.
