From the Publisher
"Benhabib and Resnik have succeeded admirably in their aspiration 'to reorient the lively debate concerning globalization, borders, migration and citizenship . . . .' With the appearance of this volume, the debate will never be the same. It is an essential resource for serious students of the subject."
-Peter H. Schuck,Simeon E. Baldwin Professor, Yale Law School
"The rare and much needed interdisciplinarity evident in this book makes it a key contribution to the subject. Each chapter engages a critical dimension of the larger puzzle. And the editors' introduction brilliantly lays out an expanded analytic terrain for the old and new questions addressed by the authors."
-—Saskia Sassen,author of Territory, Authority, Rights
"Crossing disciplinary boundaries and navigating the comparative and transnational frontiers of migration, this extraordinary volume displaces the traditional male-centered perception of immigration without falling into an essentializing and unitary vision of the world's diverse female migrants. Topical, timely, and well organized, the editors are to be congratulated for having assembled a collection that will undoubtedly stimulate a lasting debate in the field."
-Ayelet Shachar,author of The Birthright Lottery: Citizenship and Global Inequality
“The broad themes brought forth by the contributors . . . offer a rich introduction to the important problems that will occupy scholars of immigration law and policy for many years to come.”
-The Law and Politics Book Review
“Arguging that discrimination and subordination based on gender affect the relevant categorization including opportunities, rights and burdens, one of the many merits of this rich volume is that it prohibits any essentialism about both female migrants and feminist analysis by representing opposing views that allow for a productive dialogue instead of unitary world visions.”
