What People are Saying About This

Melvin Delgado

This book is destined to become REQUIRED READING FOR ALL PRACTITIONERS AND SCHOLARS interested in reaching and serving newcomers to this country. It brings together an expert panel of writers and takes a unique and often overlooked conceptual perspective on migration.
PhD, Professor of Social Work and Chair, Macro Practice Program, Boston University School of Social Work

Alex Gitterman

HIGHLY INFORMATIVE. . . . THE AUTHORS EXPLAIN AND ILLUSTRATE VITAL CONCEPTS such as transnationalism, return migration, and circular migration. Each chapter examines changes in the United States' immigration laws in the aftermath of 9/11 and their respective impacts on the suffering of immigrant populations. Chapters on the establishment of voluntary social services in Armenia and on international social work practice are bonuses for the reader. I thank professors Drachman and Paulino for placing a 'spotlight' on a substantive area fundamental to contemporary social work practice.
