"Taking Local Control: Immigration Policy Activism in U.S. Cities and States is a seminal body of work and an especially recommended contribution to academic and community library Political Science and Social Issues reference collections and supplemental reading lists." (Mary Cowper Midwest Book Review)
"This timely and significant volume provides a very strong analysis of a political debate that is relevant today and will continue to be so for the seeable future. There is a great need for it." (Rodolfo O. de la Garza, Eaton Professor of Administrative Law and Municipal Science, Department of Political Science)
"This is the first collection to bring together scholars from the full spectrum of the social sciences to consider the novel challenge of state and local action relating to immigration. The contributions are refreshingly balanced, with many recognizing the integrative as well as exclusionary possibilities of immigration policy making on the ground. The breadth of approaches represented here will make this an invaluable resource for those interested in this important subject. The book will enhance our understanding of the new landscapes of immigration federalism." (Peter Spiro, Charles Weiner Professor of Law)
