About the Authors
  • Along with the civil rights and voting rights acts, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 is one of the most important bills of the civil rights era. The Act's political, legal, and demographic impact continues to be felt, yet its legacy is controversial. The 1965 Act was groundbreaking in eliminating the white America immigration policy in place since 1790, ending Asian exclusion, and limiting discrimination against Eastern European Catholics and Jews. At the same time, the Act discriminated against gay men and lesbians, tied refugee status to Cold War political interests, and shattered traditional patterns of Mexican migration, setting the stage for current immigration politics. Drawing from studies in law, political science, anthropology, and economics, this book will be an essential tool for any scholar or student interested in immigration law.

    • The first book devoted to the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act Amendments
    • Contributions by scholars in law, political science, cultural studies, and economics reflect the modern interdisciplinary approach to immigration studies
    • Places current-day immigration debates in context and provides historically informed policy suggestions
