In both Japan and the United States, migration, refugee, and citizenship policies have become highly contentious political issues. Japan, traditionally a closed society with the lowest proportion of foreigners of any major industrial country, has struggled to utilize the recent influx of illegal migrants without incorporating them into Japanese society and citizenship. The United States, a country built by immigrants, today grapples with the impact of legal and illegal migrants on employment and social services.

Myron Weiner and Tadashi Hanami have assembled a distinguished group of American and Japanese demographers, economists, historians, lawyers, political scientists, and sociologists to examine Japan's and America's very different approaches to employer demands for labor, control over illegal migration, the incorporation of migrants, the legal rights and social benefits of foreign residents and illegal migrants, the claims of refugees and asylum seekers, and the issues of citizenship and nationality.

Temporary Workers or Future Citizens places the economic issues of migration in a cultural context, by revealing how the collective identities of Americans and Japanese shape the way each society regards immigrants and refugees.

About the Author:

Myron Weiner is Professor of Political Science at MIT, chair of the External Research Advisory Committee of UNHCR, and author of numerous works, including The Global Migration Crisis.

Review:

"A groundbreaking collection by several generations of scholars of African American religious history, theology, and ethics. A must read for anyone serious about the study of the larger Pentecostal and Charismatic movements in particular and the American Christian church and its missions in general."-A.G. Miller, Oberlin College

"An important, pioneering and multidisciplinary collection from some of the best scholars in this field. The contribution of Afro-Pentecostalism in shaping the religious history of Christianity in the twentieth century is expertly discussed and false presuppositions exposed. No student of Pentecostalism will want to be without this book."-Allan Anderson, University of Birmingham, UK
