Lynch and Simon (both justice, law, and society, American U., Washington, DC) examine the impact of immigration on largely non- economic institutions in seven highly industrialized countries, to serve as a check on the more anecdotal evidence propagated through the media. They use the best available, nationally representative statistical data, but warn that the quality of data is not uniform across the case studies. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
