In this week's podcast, we hear from an author and an editor. First, Louis DeSipio
and Rodolfo de la Garza
are authors of U.S. Immigration in the Twenty-First Century: Making Americans, Remaking America
(Westview Press, 2015). DeSipio is professor of political science and Chicano/Latino studies at University of California, Irvine; de la Garza is Eaton Professor of Administrative Law and Municipal Science in the Department of Political Science, Columbia University.
DeSipio and Garza's book covers a lot of ground, including demographic research on immigration patterns in the US as well as a detailed account of immigration policy change in the US. The book is deep in social science research, but also written in a way that makes it accessible to a wider audience, and would make a great addition to an under graduate syllabus.
Later, we hear from Deana Rohlinger
the book reviews editor for Mobilization
. Deana tells us about the books reviewed in the latest issue.
