Through historical and comparative research on the immigrant rights movements of the United States, France and the Netherlands, Cities and Social Movements examines how small resistances against restrictive immigration policies do or don t develop into large and sustained mobilizations.

Presents a comprehensive, comparative analysis of immigrant rights politics in three countries over a period of five decades, providing vivid accounts of the processes through which immigrants activists challenged or confirmed the status quoTheorizes movements from the bottom-up, presenting an urban grassroots account in order to identify how movement networks emerge or fall apartProvides a unique contribution by examining how geography is implicated in the evolution of social movements, discovering how and why the networks constituting movements grow by tracing where they developDemonstrates how efforts to enforce national borders trigger countless resistances and shows how some environments provide the relational opportunities to nurture these small resistances into sustained mobilizationsWritten to appeal to a broad audience of students, scholars, policy makers, and activists, without sacrificing theoretical rigor
