This book adds a wealth of new data on the political significance of inter-American migration, through case studies of the politics of population flows from Cuba, Central America, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and Mexico. This theme has received only preliminary attention fully ten years after the Mariel boat-lift from Cuba. The contributing scholars bolster an emerging trend in the broad study of international population movements, emphasizing the effect of government policies on migration and challenging the notion that migration is a social process quite insulated from the effects of public policy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Although immigration policy has traditionally been considered as falling within the sphere of domestic affairs, recent developments worldwide have propelled international migration on the agenda of decision-makers and scholars concerned with foreign policy and international relations. By virtue of its dominant position in the Western Hemisphere and its strategic as well as trade policies toward source countries, the United States plays a major role in determining the region's population movements; and its response to these movements is in turn shaped in large measure by foreign policy considerations. Christopher Mitchell and his colleagues have provided the first thorough exploration of these complex linkages, replete with detailed interdisciplinary case studies that will provide material for further scholarly reflections."

--Aristide R. Zolberg, New School for Social Research


"This collection of articles clearly makes the case that migration has been a central feature of political relations between the United States and Latin America. At a time when the United States is examining both its foreign policies and its migration policies, this volume should be received with keen interest."

--Robert L. Bach, Institute for Research on Multiculturalism and International Labor, SUNY-Binghamton
