Reviews

"Pojmann's volume is a 'must-read' for anyone hoping to understand the myriad issues facing immigrant communities in Europe. The essays show immigrants as vital political and social actors with a dynamic role to play in Western Europe. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars across disciplines." - Lori Marso, Professor of Political Science, Union College

"Wendy Pojmann's collection of essays reminds us that migrants are political actors, which we too often forget, and rarely study. The fact is universal, but historical and national contexts, migrants' situation and gender, shape their political agenda and activities. Only a truly comparative and multidisciplinary endeavor such as this, could then allow us to grasp the complexity and diversity of migrant politics in Western Europe during the last half-century and still capture the common dynamics at work in European post-colonial societies. The authors offer us an exciting new field of investigation and some solid guidelines." - Dr. Philippe Rygiel, Center for Twentieth Century Social History, University of Paris I (Sorbonne)
