Editorial Reviews


"Race and Immigration tackles two of the most important issues facing American society and demonstrates how we cannot understand one without the other. In an insightful and clear examination of immigration laws, the occupations of immigrants, and the development of identities among newcomers and their children, the authors show how race shapes the fortunes of the newest Americans and how they in turn are shaping the meaning of race in America. This is a readable, intelligent overview of dynamic trends that are reshaping our society."
Mary C. Waters, Harvard University

"From the development of policy to immigrant incorporation and identities, this highly readable book makes clear that racial inequalities and boundaries are central to our understanding of immigration in the United States."
Nancy Foner, Hunter College and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York

"While many scholars have written about race and immigration, this book uniquely brings contemporary structures of racism and immigration to a wide variety of readers. Amidst the political rhetoric of a 'post-racial society' the authors remind us that racism continues to exert deleterious effects on a variety of groups including immigrants. Equally important, this book reminds us about the racialization of two groups that remain less visible in the migration literature: highly skilled migrants and black immigrants. A very timely and useful book for scholars, practitioners, and a general audience of interested readers."
Bandana Purkayastha, University of Connecticut

"Race and Immigration's serious examination of the relationship between immigration, race, and ethnicity is a welcome respite from the din of the acrimonious public debate on the costs and benefits of contemporary immigration. Chock-full of useful and up-to-date information on hotly contested immigration issues, it is a valuable resource for all those interested in social change."
Yen Le Espiritu, University of California, San Diego

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Anyone who wants to know more about immigration and to understand what lies behind some of the politics surrounding immigration should read this book. The authors have done a masterful job of showing how racial politics are intricately linked to immigration debates and they challenge some of the classical sociological thinking that separates race and ethnicity. This is a sophisticated argument that is highly accessible to the general readership. Excellent selection for undergraduate courses on race and ethnicity, too!
