Living on the margins breaks new ground by offering a unique insight into the working lives of undocumented (or `irregular') migrants living in London, and their employers. It exposes the contradictions in policies, which marginalise and criminalise these migrants, while promoting exploitative labour market policies but also reveals that the migrants can be active agents in shaping their lives within the constraint of status. .

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Alice Bloch and Sonia McKay not only show the challenges faced by those living without documentation, but also explore current legislation and policies that are shaping these experiences." LSE Review of Books
"Bloch and McKay provide a thorough-going account of...the undocumented migrant." Chartist
"A very welcome contribution in a context where immigrants are seen as scapegoats for unemployment and weakening social cohesion." Asian and Pacific Migration Journal
"This is a fascinating and accessible account of the everyday lives of undocumented migrants. Drawing on high quality empirical research it provides a compelling narrative of their experiences and how they navigate the pressures of living on the margins of society." John Solomos, University of Warwick
"Based on lengthy interviews with workers and employers from China, Turkey, and Bangladesh, the book documents in tragic detail the penalties of 'illegality' for undocumented migrants living and working in London during an era of global economic downturn. Essential and timely." Jacqueline Maria Hagan, University of North Carolina, USA
