About James Hampshire
Table of contents
Christina Boswell, University of Edinburgh
"Not only a brilliant work of scholarship, it is the best book on the politics of migration in decades and deserves to become the standard work."
Randall Hansen, University of Toronto
"More than just the best available synthesis on migration from a political science perspective, James Hampshire's new book offers a persuasive and coherent argument about the contradictions of the liberal state as it meets the fact of immigration. Highly recommended."
Christian Joppke, University of Bern
"Recommendable for a wide range of audiences. Hampshire s approach of focusing on shared features of liberal states across various regions is innovative and enlightening"
