9780739109618: Crossing Over: Comparing Recent Migration in the United States and Europe (Program in Migration and Refugee Studies)

Despite growing cultural and economic homogenization across the globe, the visible presence of immigrant communities stands out in many metropolises of the world. In almost all major cities the cultural and physical presence of various ethnic or religious groups is very much in evidence. Yet, until now, the academic treatment of international migration has mostly been confined to limited case studies, single ethnic groups, or single locations. Crossing Over offers an alternative to this method, bringing together a diverse group of academics charged with submitting new research that juxtaposes experiences and draws on comparisons between aspects of migration in Europe and the United States. The essays focus on two main issues: security issues―heightened by recent terrorist activities―and the question of citizenship, identity, and host-guest interaction. The result is a collection of accessible research essays that shed light on both the parallels and differences that exist for immigrant groups across continents and cultures.

About the Author:

Holger Henke is assistant professor in political science at Metropolitan College of New York, Audrey Cohen School of Human Services and Education and Senior Fellow at the Caribbean Research Center, City University of New York, Medgar Evers College.

Review:

This timely and ambitious volume features a broad set of comparative studies which raise new questions and offer new insights into the contemporary world of migration. The combination of theoretical depth and empirical exemplification takes the debate to a new level and makes Crossing Over a must for anyone interested in migration research. (Professor Klaus J. Blade, Director, Institute for Migrations Research and Intercultural Studies (IMIS), Osnabrueck University)

Timely and relevant, Professor Henke's edited text brings to life in compelling fashion all the "hot button" theoretical and policy issues confronting nation states in Europe and the United States in this post 9/11 era. It should be a standard supplementary text for professors and policy-makers engaged in the study of migration and is well worth reading. (Aubrey W. Bonnett, SUNY College at Old Westbury)

This volume's profound significance rests in the use, by every single one of its authors, of comparative case studies either between Europe and the United States or across European national formations. The volume is framed by the profound challenges being made in a post-September 11th world to the idea of national peoplehood, culturally and socially, and to notions of the rights of citizenship by rapidly growing immigrant populations. It is a timely engagement with the tensions produced by efforts aimed at the management of a global shift to diasporic identity among immigrants in host countries. The new concern with security has catapulted this shift to the top of the agenda of national policy making, multiculturalism, and scholarly examination. The volume speaks profoundly to each of these issues. (Percy C. Hintzen University Of California, Berkeley)

Crossing Over is one of only a few books that analyzes the hotly debated processes of transnational migrations in a multi-faceted comparative perspective. The volume moves beyond the usual and often ideological generalizing conclusions and stereotypes, teaching us to see the different as well as the common economic, political, and intercultural repercussions of transnational migrations in a way that is politically and culturally enabling. (Guenter H. Lenz, Institut fuer Anglistik und Amerikanistik, Humboldt-Universitaet)
