Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“A rare combination of an author, [Mike Davis is] Rachel Carson and Upton Sinclair all in one.”—Susan Faludi

“[Davis’ writing is] perceptive and rigorous.”—David Montgomery, The Nation

“[Davis’ work is] brilliant, provocative, and exhaustively researched.”—The Village Voice

“[Davis’ work is] eloquent and passionate.”—Tariq Ali

No One Is Illegal debunks the leading ideas behind the often violent right-wing backlash against immigrants.

Countering the chorus of anti-immigrant voices, Mike Davis and Justin Akers Chacón expose the racism of anti-immigration vigilantes and put a human face on the immigrants who risk their lives to cross the border to work in the United States.

Davis and Akers Chacón challenge the racist politics of vigilante groups like the Minutemen, and argue for a pro-immigrant and pro-worker agenda that recognizes the urgent need for international solidarity and cross-border alliances in building a renewed labor movement.

Writer, historian, and activist Mike Davis is the author of many books, including City of Quartz, The Ecology of Fear, The Monster at Our Door, and Planet of Slums. Davis teaches in the Department of History at the University of California at Irvine, and lives in San Diego. Davis is the recipient of the 2001 Carey McWilliams Award and the World History Association Book Award.

Justin Akers Chacón is professor of U.S. History and Chicano Studies in San Diego, California. He has contributed to the International Socialist Review and the book Immigration: Opposing Viewpoints (Greenhaven Press).

Book News Annotation:

California-based historians Akers Chacón and Davis set out the historical and contemporary dimensions of the immigrant rights struggle, focusing primarily on the US-Mexico border and the experience of working people who cross the border, or who were crossed by it. They first trace the political, racial, and class origins and evolution of the anti-immigrant movement, then place the formation of immigration policy in the context of the struggle between capital and labor. Award-winning Mexican photographer Julián Cardona provides illustrations. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
