This first-of-a-kind edited collection considers the recent phenomenon of transnational migration to Israel in a comparative context. The essays gathered here explore the large and rapid influx of foreign workers in Israel and how their presence has contributed to major shifts in the local labor economy while also generating complicated legal, policy-related, cultural, and ideological questions and problems.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A wonderful book. It provides a window into the lives of immigrants in Israel, a place not usually thought of as a site for contemporary labor migration. A major contribution to transnational migration studies. -- Leo Chavez, University of California, Irvine
This edited volume is one of the first monographs in English to deal with non-Jewish migration to Israel and situate this fairly recent phenomenon within a global context. Each chapter draws upon multiple levels of analysis, highlighting the contradictions, ambiguities and contingencies at work in the Israeli migration regime. This important book will be of interest for a wide range of scholars and professionals interested in contemporary migration, Israel and the Middle East. Researchers of citizenship, irregularity and public health will find here analyses with invaluable insights well beyond the book's regional focus. * Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, August 2009 *
This fascinating book comes along at a time when immigration is of growing interest in many countries. Not only does it provide rich information on contemporary migration to Israel, but its explicitly comparative dimension will make it useful to scholars of transnational movements around the world. -- Josiah Heyman, director of the Center for Inter-American and Border Studies, University of Texas at El Paso
Sarah Willen's introduction connects the structural condition of non-Jewish migrants in Israel with that of migrant workers in the Arab Gulf, one of many strikingly illuminating points raised by the volume. * MESA Bulletin *
