Review quote

Agustin Escobar Latapi and Susan F. Martin have performed an exceptional public service to both Mexico and the United States. The scholars they have gathered offer valuable suggestions for policy reforms in both countries that build on the reality of a unified labor market that neither government has dealt with effectively. Taken as a whole, the analyses and the recommendations are very useful and sober additions to the highly emotional and intellectually weak current discussion of the issues in both countries. -- Jeffrey Davidow, former U.S. ambassador to Mexico This is a timely and important volume that provides a balanced and well-documented account of US-Mexican migration by leading specialists from both Mexico and the United States. It is particularly strong in its demographic, economic, and policy analyses, providing a state-of-the-art account, not only of the current situation, but also of likely future trends. In a field in which debate and analysis is too often clouded by partisanship, both within and between the two countries, this volume is outstanding for its binational collaboration and dispassionate analysis. It provides new thinking about migration policy at a time when this is badly needed in both Mexico and the US. -- Bryan R. Roberts, University of Texas at Austin Mexico-U.S. Migration Management: A Binational Approach is as significant a contribution as its topic is important for both the United States and Mexico! This is the best comprehensive policy-relevant treatment of the subject in over a decade and its information and recommendations should be absorbed by all who care about both countries' futures. A 'must read!' -- Frank Bean, director of the Center for Research on Immigration, Population and Public Policy, University of California-Irvine Immigration has always made a major contribution to the social and economic makeup of the United States. Arrival of immigrants often takes place below the radar screen of public attention, but at other times their arrival generates great controversy, as is now the case of unauthorized immigrants from Mexico. The mexicanos and norteamericanos who wrote the chapters of this book provide both context and analysis for understanding the different reactions in the two countries. This is a must read for anyone who wishes to be informed about this issue. -- Sidney Weintraub, Center for Strategic and International Studies
