This provocative volume explores immigration law in Spain and Italy, and exposes the tension between the temporary legal status of most immigrants, and the government emphasis on integration. It demonstrates the connections among immigrants' role as cheap labor--carefully inscribed in law--and their social exclusion and racialization. At the broadest level, the book engages questions of citizenship and belonging in this global era. It uniquely combines analysis of immigration laws and immigrants' daily experiences.Read more
- The first English-language book to examine immigration policy and the immigrant experience in these new countries of large-scale immigration (Spain and Italy)
- Provides the basis for a broadly comparative analysis, not just between Italy and Spain, but between these southern European countries and the United States
- Brings together important international scholarship in the original languages (Spanish, Italian, and in some cases Catalan) and makes it accessible to an English-speaking audience
Reviews & endorsements
"Calavita has done a very insightful and important analysis of the economics of immigration, immigrant integration, and the law in action in Spain and Italy. This book is highly recommended for those interested in immigration politics, immigrant integration, and how laws impact day-to-day life for those looking to improve their lives in Europe." -Political Science Quarterly, Terri E. Givens, University of Texas, AustinSee more reviews
"...very informative and highly commendable. I see practical and theoretical importance in her work for graduate students and researchers interested in related issues of immigration and law." - The Law and Politics Book Review, Marc-Georges Pufong, Valdosta State University
"Immigrants at the Margins is an excellent critique of current immigration policies in Spain and Italy. Immigrants at the Margins is essential reading for anyone interested in the failure of immigrant integration in post-Fordist economies."
