“Debating Immigration presents twenty original and updated essays, written by some of the world’s leading experts and pre-eminent scholars that explore the nuances of contemporary immigration in the United States and Europe. This volume is organized around the following themes: economics, demographics and race, law and policy, philosophy and religion, and European politics. Its topics include comprehensive immigration reform, the limits of executive power, illegal immigration, human smuggling, civil rights and employment discrimination, economic growth and unemployment, and social justice and religion. A timely second edition, Debating Immigration is an effort to bring together divergent voices to discuss various aspects of immigration often neglected or buried in discussions.
Advance praise: ‘Carol M. Swain has a knack for identifying important issues of social welfare policy before other analysts. From her background and research, she sees issues, trends, and perspectives in an important way. Hers is a voice that needs to be part of any conversation on immigration.’
