"David Cook-Martin crosses the bounds of sociology, history, and anthropology to explain the practice and context of dual citizenship in the global twenty-first century. The Scramble for Citizens far-sighted analytical framework, based upon a detailed qualitative study of Spain, Italy, and Argentina, will become even more salient in coming years." (Mark I. Choate Brigham Young University, author of Emigrant Nation: The Making of Italy Abroad)
"This is a well written and thoroughly researched book. While it is empirically grounded, it adopts innovative theoretical and conceptual approaches in a burgeoning field. The Scramble for Citizens would appeal to students and scholars in sociology, politics, anthropology, geography, migration, and diaspora studies." (Brij Maharaj)
"In The Scramble for Citizens, Cook-Martín artfully explores how and why certain states compete for immigrants. This multimethod study examines historical and current struggles around citizenship and nationalism within and between Argentina, Spain, and Italy. It employs comparative-historical techniques to explore 19th-century competitions for citizens and contemporary ethnographic accounts of Argentines struggling to reconnect with Europe . . . I still highly recommend it as an insightful and well-researched study of historic and modern migration. It is well written, creative, and thought provoking. It will be of great use to advanced students and scholars of migration, political sociology, and Ibero-American studies―with a splash of Italy thrown in." (Julie Stewart)
"David Cook-Martíns The Scramble for Citizens has three remarkable qualities: it's an innovative look at citizenship laws as shaped by interstate competition, the best available account of southern European citizenship, and a stimulating diagnosis of certain 're-ethnicizing' and 'lightening' trends of contemporary citizenship. Excellent!" (Christian Joppke University of Bern)
"Rather than a world of the one-percenters moving freely about nation-states, Cook-Martin tells the story of the increasing mobile Argentine middle class and those on the margins of society-immobile and left behind with a devalued citizenship. Drawing from both comparative historical and ethnographic methods, Cook-Martin advances a political field approach to understand existing citizenship and immigration policy. He shows that Italy, Spain, and Argentina made immigration policy in relation to changes in the global economy and in anticipation of each other's immigration policies." (Randolph Hohle Social Forces)
