This timely, valuable book significantly contributes to the field of immigration policy and practice, and political studies... Highly recommended.
With the current immigration debate soon to begin in force once more, it would be advisable for some to read this book in order to better understand the enforcement side of the immigration issue.

Not all is well on the American immigration front. This is one of the most critical examinations of the deep flaws in our laws and enforcement practices concerning the foreigner. Historically, few states have been able to handle the foreigner in a reasonably fair way, but many continue to think that the United States is such a state. This collection pinpoints with frightening precision how and why it is not, and the extent to which these deep flaws are not an aberration or a malfunction but actually an intrinsic part of our law.

In the United States and the European Union, conflicts around migration have become a central arena for wider political conflicts and the struggles surrounding globalization, including the increasing need for a cosmopolitan concept of citizenship. This volume represents an invaluable guide to the sources, development, and hopeful solutions to such conflicts.
