From the Publisher"This book is devoted to the exploration of those mechanisms of transnational mobility—smuggling and trafficking—deemed illegal in countries of destination, particularly the US. A law enforcement perspective strongly influences the author's approach. In his words, although immigrants themselves should form part of the discussion, the study focuses on smuggling and trafficking activities, their organization and profiles. If one's chief interest lies in the workings of the smuggling trade and the measures designed to counteract such activities, the book will prove especially useful and informative. It is well organized, clearly written, and thoroughly documented….Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above."
"Zhang, a professor of sociology at San Diego State University, meticulously reviews the available information in the field—includng academic studies, policy reports, and news articles. He showcases how addressing human smuggling in the United States suffers from a lack of good data, and a hodgepodge of political kneejerk responses….This type of compilation of a portrain of illegal entries in the United States is important, and should be taken further."
