Clandestine Crossing: The Stories
David Spener from the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Trinity University published an e-book titled “Clandestine Crossings: The Stories”. The e-book is meant to be a companion to Spener’s book, Clandestine Crossings: Migrants and Coyotes on the Texas-Mexico Border (Cornell University Press, 2009). The e-book explores nine different experiences from migrant’s crossing the border into America.
Social Research published its spring 2010 issue on MIGRATION POLITICS. The array of papers in this special issue bridges issues of migration in Europe and the United States, integrating the pressing questions of state building, ethnic conflict, migration and integration, comparative politics and society, and transnational politics, and bringing to life the intersections between the academy and the world that too often fade from view. Migration Politics also addresses the often overlooked, intricate links between scholarship on African decolonialization and the civil rights movement in the United States. The issue, which honors Aristide Zolberg’s intellectual contribution to the field of migration and immigration studies, concludes with a roundtable discussion reflecting on Zolberg’s life and work.
