Product Description

Review

“Deftly executed work of sociological detection on an important and timely subject.”
(Sociological Forum 2008-05-01)

“This excellent book should become an important reference for debates on immigration and multiculturalism. Its claims are subtle and well argued, its empirical evidence is carefully evaluated, and its multiple comparisons are well deployed in a multilayered way.”
(Gianpaolo Baiocchi American Journal Of Sociology / AJS 2009-01-01)

From the Inside Flap

"Becoming a Citizen is a terrific book. Important, innovative, well argued, theoretically significant, and empirically grounded. It will be the definitive work in the field for years to come."—Frank D. Bean, Co-Director, Center for Research on Immigration, Population and Public Policy

"This book is in three ways innovative. First, it avoids the domestic navel-gazing of U.S .immigration studies, through an obvious yet ingenious comparison with Canada. Second, it shows that official multiculturalism and common citizenship may very well go together, revealing Canada, and not the United States, as leader in successful immigrant integration. Thirdly, the book provides a compelling picture of how the state matters in making immigrants citizens. An outstanding contribution to the migration and citizenship literature!"—Christian Joppke, American University of Paris

HASH(0xa1d189fc) out of 5 stars Excellent comparison of immigration policy in Canada and the US Jan. 11 2016
By Martin Gellen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent comparison of immigration policy in Canada and the US. A lot to be learned from Canada, especially in how it incorporates immigrants into national life, which is a major part of the governments approach to immigration.
