Reviews

“The Other People is a collection of 12 chapters by authors from a rather wide range of disciplines. The book promises to ‘provoke scholars and citizens to think more broadly about human rights and social justice and how to engage others around those issues’ … . The Other People succeeds in including multiple interesting perspectives on migration, and as such will prove rewarding for readers.” (Kateřina Uhlířová, International Journal of Refugee Law, Vol. 28 (3), 2016)


"Migration is perhaps the most critical social and legal issue shaping global society and quality of life worldwide in the twenty-first century. Applying a range of disciplinary perspectives - anthropology, geography, history, law, political science, social work, sociology, women's studies - the essays in this book examine the lives of migrants themselves as well as the communities through which they travel. Skillfully written in the passionate voices of experts in migration studies, this book will provoke not only scholars and upper division students, but also professionals in education, law, nursing and health care, politics, religion, and social welfare to think more broadly in terms of not only migration but also human rights and social justice." - Wenqian Dai, University of South Dakota, USA
