Overview

This comprehensive overview offers a radical critique of various positions within political philosophy on immigration. Cole argues that there is a serious gap between the legal and social practices of immigration and naturalization in liberal democratic states and the theoretical justification for such practices within the tradition of liberal political philosophy. The book examines various responses to this contradiction, and finds none of them satisfactory, arguing that this has serious implications both for liberal practice and theory.
