About the Authors
  • This book is the first interdisciplinary study of the fundamental normative issues underpinning immigration policy. A distinguished group of economists, political scientists, and philosophers offer a stimulating and provocative discussion of this complex topic. Among the issues addressed are the proper role of the state in supporting a particular culture, the possible destabilization of the political and social life of a country through immigration and the size and distribution of economic losses and gains.

    • Topic is of considerable interest
    • Broad interdisciplinary appeal to moral philosophers, legal theorists, political scientists and economists
