About the Author:

This is Richard Brownell's fourth title for Lucent Books. His other books include The Fall of the Confederacy and the End of Slavery, and America's Failure in Vietnam, which are part of Lucent's History's Great Defeats series, and The Oklahoma City Bombing, which is part of Lucent's Crime Scene Investigation Series. He has written two stage plays that have received numerous productions around the country, and also writes political commentary for various periodicals and Internet sites. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from New York University, where he was also recognized for Senior Achievement in Screenwriting. Richard lives in New York City. 

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6–10—This title attempts to provide an unbiased view of the highly charged issue. Unlike the "Opposing Viewpoints" books (Gale), which draw on a wide variety of contributors, it is the work of a single author and it seems skewed toward an anti-immigration perspective. It is worth noting that the cover shows an armed U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer, which reflects the book's content far better than the title. With the exception of an introductory chapter about the history of immigration in America, the focus is on illegal immigration across the southern border of the United States, not on immigration in general. This clash between the title and the content is unfortunate. Full-color photographs and sidebars appear throughout, and the layout is accessible and appealing, but the book has a substantial number of copy-editing issues. It concludes with discussion questions, organizations to contact, and a "For More Information" section. Many current titles address the topic better.—Kristin Anderson, Columbus Metropolitan Library System, OH
