qNo one in the news media should write or talk about immigration without reading Writing Immigration.q --Lawrence O'Donnell, Host of MSNBC The Last word with Lawrence O'Donnell qI cannot help but applaud the idea for this book, especially given the caliber of the editors. The communication between social scientists and journalists is often not smooth, and there is a strong rationale for attempting to bridge this divide on the issues surrounding immigration, which appear at times to divide the American public into opposing camps.q --Richard Alba, author of Blurring the Color Line: The New Chance for a More Integrated America qBringing together academics and journalists--inviting them to talk with, not at, one another--is an enterprise as important as it is rare. When the participants in the conversation are as lively, provocative and insightful as the contributors to Writing Immigration, the result is a real treat. For anyone who wants to understand how immigration is molding the nation's future, this book is an indispensable read.q --David Kirp is a professor at the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California at Berkeley and former associate editor of the Sacramento Bee. qA compelling book on an extremely timely topic, from writers with a great capacity to spin a story.q -Professor Patricia GAindara, Co-Director of The Civil Rights Project at UCLA qAcademics and journalists share the weighty responsibility of helping the public see where our ship is headed. When it comes to immigration, we need a cure for myopia and this important, timely book is it: a map for thinking about immigration in the round. It will elevate the public conversation.q --Danielle Allen, UPS Foundation Professor of Social Science at the Institute for Advanced Study qImmigration in the United States is our past, our present, and very likely our future. The brilliance of this volume is that it looks both at it subject--immigration--through the very different lenses of journalism and academia, juxtaposing their styles and approaches to explore one of the central policy dilemmas of our day, the integration of immigrants -not all of them legal--and their children into American society and economy, while critiquing the role of media and scholarly observers who shape our understanding of immigration as well.q --Michael Jones-Correa, Professor of Government, Cornell UniversityIn 2008, Immigration Studies at New York University and the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University ...
