Probing the Humane Side of the Immigration Issue,
This review is from: A Common Humanity: Ritual, Religion, and Immigrant Advocacy in Tucson, Arizona (Paperback)
This well researched and documented book presents an historical perspective of the undocumented migration into the U.S. But, as readers, we are drawn into the human/humane side of the issue as we imagine the migrants' dangerous journey though the harsh desert of Arizona. We are introduced to three volunteer organizations which are making a major impact in saving the lives and health of the migrants crossing the border who are simply striving for a better life. It is obvious that Lane Van Ham has a deep passion for this issue and has spent countless hours carefully researching this. It has definetly changed my perspective of this topic.
Also -- don't skip the footnotes at the end; they are an interesting read in themselves.
