Immigration Structures and Immigrant Lives provides a concise, comprehensive, interdisciplinary introduction to U.S. immigration and immigrants. The book is presented in two parts. Part I addresses the history, structure, dynamics, and politics of U.S. immigration from colonial times to the present. Part II focuses on the lives of immigrants with separate chapters examining the immigrant struggle simply to live, the challenges and opportunities of work in America, the different beliefs and commitments that fortify immigrants in their new lives, and the many different ways in which immigrants come to belong in the United States. The introduction and epilogue bracket the U.S. experience within a broader consideration of human mobility and current global migration trends and issues. Tables, case examples, and a timeline help illuminate both the general shape of immigration and the details of immigrant life. This text is accompanied by an ancillary package of digital tables and illustrations in order to enhance the learning experience of both the instructors and students.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In an era when immigration in the United States is hotly debated, Haines has provided us with a provocative, theoretically informed, conceptually rigorous, and ethnographically rich overview of US immigration from past to present. His approach, which situates US immigration within a broader framework of human mobility, is multidimensional, cross-disciplinary, and comparative. The clarity of his writing makes this an excellent volume for classroom use as well as for the general reader who, in particular, may find the chapter focused on migration politics and policies especially illuminating--Caroline B. Brettell, Southern Methodist University
Haines communicates an especially rich, humane and detailed understanding of international migration in a concise, compelling and elegantly written book. Drawing on years of scholarship, teaching and personal experience, he is able to integrate key points from a range of disciplines and perspectives, stressing both unique and common elements associated with what has become a key issue of our time.--Steven J. Gold, professor of sociology, Michigan State University
Immigration Structures and Immigrant Lives gives a great overview of much of past and present immigration to the U.S. Haines does this in a very accessible way and by providing diverse case comparisons of different immigrant and refugee groups.--Bernadette Ludwig, PhD, assistant professor of Sociology, Wagner College
