Nation and Migration: Past and Future (Special Issue of American Quarterly)

by

Nation and Migration: Past and Future (Special Issue of American Quarterly) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Much of the terrain in American studies has been transformed in recent years by a fundamental reconsideration of the relationship among capitalism, the nation-state, and human migration. Nation and Migration focuses on this disciplinary shift and offers a contemporary understanding of the transnational circulation of migrants and immigrants in a global economy.

In the first section, contributors evaluate issues of citizenship and state power, examining the mechanisms through which immigrants are regulated, restricted, and disciplined by state institutions and agents. The next section presents differing perspectives on transnationalism. This discussion is followed by essays that address how migrants and migrant communities experience their tenuous positions. The concluding section analyzes literary representations of the entwined processes of imperialism, globalization, and transnational migration.

Covering a broad range of nationalities and topics, the essays that make up this book suggest that there are many borders to cross in the new scholarship on nation and migration.

Book News Annotation:

Editors Gutiérrez (history, U. of California, San Diego) and Hondagneu- Sotelo (sociology, U. of Southern California) have gathered these essays on transnational migration in global economies to discuss such issues as citizenship, state power and the regulation and restrictions of immigration policies. Written for students and scholars interested in national migratory patterns, this volume also investigates the feelings and emotions in migrant communities by using case studies from countries such as Saudi Arabia, Mexico and the United States. Representations of migrants in literature such as Katherine Mayo's Mother India and Julia Alvarez's How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents are also analyzed.
