John Skrentny’s chapter on the politics of immigration in the Obama administration now available

With support from the Russell Sage Foundation, political scientists Theda Skocpol and Larry Jacobs assembled a group of scholars to analyze the politics of reform in the Obama administration.  The ensuing book, Reaching for a New Deal: Ambitious Governance, Economic Meltdown, and Polarized Politics in Obama’s First Two Years, is now available.  The book includes John Skrentny’s chapter, “Obama’s Immigration Reform: A Tough Sell for a Grand Bargain,” as well as chapters on health care, higher education, financial regulation, labor law reform, K-12 education, energy policy, and tax reform.
