9780745664163: Immigration and Population (Immigration and Society)

Immigration is the primary cause of population change in developed countries and a major component of population change in many developing countries. This clear and perceptive text discusses how immigration impacts population size, composition, and distribution. The authors address major socio-political issues of immigration through the lens of demography, bringing demographic insights to bear on a number of pressing questions currently discussed in the media, such as: Does immigration stimulate the economy? Do immigrants put an excessive strain on health care systems? How does the racial and ethnic composition of immigrants challenge what it means to be American (or French or German)?
 
By systematically exploring demographic topics such as fertility, health, education, and age and sex structures, the book provides students of immigration with a broader understanding of the impact of immigration on populations and offers new ways to think about immigration and society.

About the Author:

Stephanie A. Bohon is Associate Professor of Sociology and Associate Director of the Center for the Study of Social Justice at the University of Tennessee.

Meghan E. Conley is James Farmer Postdoctoral Fellow in Civil Rights and Social Justice at the University of Mary Washington.

Review:

Bohon and Conley have written an important book that clearly articulates the ubiquitous impact of immigration on the U.S. economy, social institutions, and the country's demographic future. This book is a welcome state-of-the-field scientific literature overview for classroom instruction and scholarly advancement.
Gordon De Jong, Penn State University

In an age of large-scale U.S. immigration often enveloped in bombastic rhetoric, this book is a breath of fresh air. Bohon and Conley�s straightforward analysis clearly shows how immigration intersects with demography, a field that uses empirical data to understand how immigrants fare in U.S. society. This is a must-read for everyone interested in understanding contemporary debates about U.S. immigration.
Katharine M. Donato, Vanderbilt University

"The authors of this timely book provide an outstanding review of both the theoretical and empirical literature concerning immigration's effect on education, health, and the environment. The chapter on assimilation and integration is particularly noteworthy� The text is jargon-free and accessible to non-demographers."
