From the Publisher"In States Against Migrants Antje Ellermann provides an insightful and scrupulously researched examination of the practice of deportation across two countries and offers a subtle and original examination of the nature of the contemporary regulatory state. This is compelling political science."
-Matthew J. Gibney, University of Oxford
"Antje Ellermann has written an important book on a controversial but neglected topic. Firmly grounded with the public policy literature, Ellerman offers a theory of divergent outcomes in 'socially coercive' public policy, one emphasizing the basic importance of bureaucratic actors. This book should be required reading for anyone interested in immigration, bureaucracy, and public policy."
-Randall Hansen, University of Toronto
"Ellermann has written a powerful book that will be required reading for anyone interested in immigration control. By delving into the virtually unexplored area of deportation, she provides great insights into the difficulties that liberal democracies face in formulating and implementing immigration policy."
-James F. Hollifield, Southern Methodist University
"In showing that 'state capacity' varies across policy stages, this lucid and richly documented book moves our understanding of the role of the state in immigration policy to new heights. One of the best works of political science ever published on immigration."
-Christian Joppke, The American University of Paris
"Any analyst who wants to understand where the real politics of immigration lay today is obliged to consider what happens on the ground - at the implementation level. No single analysis brings home this point more effectively and compellingly than Antje Ellermann's thoughtful and careful examination of comparative deportation strategies. This book goes where most have not gone before, ingeniously peeling off the under-layers of liberal state capacities to control migration in the modern era."
