"Daniel Tichenor'sDividing Linesis one of the best books on U.S. immigration policy to appear in the past decade. Political scientists, sociologists, historians, and nonacademic readers will all find it illuminating."--Martin Shefter, Cornell University "This is an excellent book. It constitutes a superb narrative history of American immigration policy and reform, makes sense of the trajectory of this development, and connects the politics and history of immigration reform to a set of larger theoretical claims in the field of American political development. It thus makes a number of important contributions, not only to immigration history but also to American political development and the historical-institutional study of politics generally."--Robert C. Lieberman, Columbia UniversityTichenor, Daniel J. is the author of 'Dividing Lines The Politics of Immigration Control in America', published 2002 under ISBN 9780691088051 and ISBN 0691088055.
