Description : From the mid 1700's to the early 1900's there was a mass exodus of people from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. During the reign of Queen Victoria, from 1837 to 1901, around fifteen million people emigrated to America, Canada, South Africa, New Zealand and Australia. The reasons they left the country of their birth were many and varied. There was high unemployment in the working classes due to the Industrial Revolution, the Agricultural Revolution, the Enclosure Movement and the Land Clearances. The potato famines in Ireland and Scotland caused starvation and death, prompting a mass exodus from those areas. This story follows the lives of three families who immigrated to South Australia in the 1850's. Each family originated in different parts of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and travelled separately to South Australia, spanning a four-year period, unaware that their future lives would be forever joined. The Speck families, brick-makers from Cambridgeshire, sailed from Liverpool in October 1852, the Stacey family, willow-workers from Wiltshire, sailed from Southampton in January 1854 and the Murphy family, farmers from Kilkenny, sailed from Plymouth in November 1855. The journey, over the seas, was hazardous and life in the early years of South Australia took its toll on people as they tried to create better lives for themselves and their families in the new colony. By the end of 1888 the three families were joined into one extended family living in the mid-north of South Australia. More births, deaths and marriages followed as the families grew and were subjected to droughts, floods, a world war and an economic depression. All of these people left a memory legacy that should not be forgotten.

Description : "A meaningful documentation of the ways in which structural and cultural conditions in current immigration and violence against women laws in the United States reinforce the hierarchies and intersections of race, class, and heterosexuality that impact on the lives of battered Latina immigrants."---Natalie J. Sokoloff, author of Domestic Violence at the Margins: Readings in Race, Class, Gender, and Culture "With great sensitivity to the plight of Latina immigrants who face partner abuse, Villalon has produced a beautifully crafted and finely grained ethnography. The book makes a major contribution to the analysis of violence against women, immigration and citizenship. It is a must read for anyone interested in understanding the complexities involved in those issues."---Mounira M. Charrad, author of States and Women's Rights: The Making of Postcolonial Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco "Many of us have been waiting for this book for a long time. It does not disappoint. By creating a dialogue between domestic violence research and immigration studies, Villalon puts into sharp relief the experiences of women rendered invisible in both research traditions. By locating the experiences of immigrant women and their advocates within a rich ethnographic study of state policies and organizational practices, Villalon paints a complex picture of the contradictions that contribute to the reproduction of inequality. This is activist scholarship at its best."---Nancy A. Naples, author of Grassroots Warriors: Activist Mothering, Community Work and the War against Poverty. Caught between violent partners and the bureaucratic complications of the U.S. immigration system, many immigrant women are particularly vulnerable to abuse. For two years, Roberta Villaon volunteered at a nonprofit group that offered free legal services to underprivileged immigrants who had been victims of initmate partner violence. Her innovative study of Latina survivors of domestic abuse explores the intersection of immigration, citizenship, and violence, and shows how inequality is perpetuated even through domestic violence-based immigration laws and the well-intentioned delivery of vital services. Villalon proposes an active advocacy agenda and suggests possible policy changes, revealing the complexities of the lives of battered Latina immigrants.

Description : In Scandinavian countries immigration is a sensitive issue and legislators’ approach to the questions it has raised has varied over the years. Whatever immigrant and integration policies are adopted in a democratic society, it is clear that the legislation and the authorities have to ensure that the individual rights of the immigrants residing in its territory are respected. With Canada as a point of reference, this book draws attention to weaknesses in the regulation and implementation of integration provisions threatening the immigrants’ individual rights in the EU member states of Denmark, Finland and Sweden. The study challenges readers to critically review the meaning of rights and the notion of global caring. It takes a critical look at how vulnerable immigrants fare in a largely immigrant nation with a welfare capitalism legacy, when compared to three European nations which claim to embrace institutional welfare models. This book will be of great interest to scholars and decision-makers interested in Scandinavian or Canadian immigration and integration policies.

Description : In Unruly Immigrants, Monisha Das Gupta explores the innovative strategies that South Asian feminist, queer, and labor organizations in the United States have developed to assert claims to rights for immigrants without the privileges or security of citizenship. Since the 1980s many South Asian immigrants have found the India-centered “model minority” politics of previous generations inadequate to the task of redressing problems such as violence against women, homophobia, racism, and poverty. Thus they have devised new models of immigrant advocacy, seeking rights that are mobile rather than rooted in national membership, and advancing their claims as migrants rather than as citizens-to-be. Creating social justice organizations, they have inventively constructed a transnational complex of rights by drawing on local, national, and international laws to seek entitlements for their constituencies. Das Gupta offers an ethnography of seven South Asian organizations in the northeastern United States, looking at their development and politics as well as the conflicts that have emerged within the groups over questions of sexual, class, and political identities. She examines the ways that women’s organizations have defined and responded to questions of domestic violence as they relate to women’s immigration status; she describes the construction of a transnational South Asian queer identity and culture by people often marginalized by both mainstream South Asian and queer communities in the United States; and she draws attention to the efforts of labor groups who have sought economic justice for taxi drivers and domestic workers by confronting local policies that exploit cheap immigrant labor. Responding to the shortcomings of the state, their communities, and the larger social movements of which they are a part, these groups challenge the assumption that citizenship is the necessary basis of rights claims.

Description : Immigration has long shaped US society in fundamental ways. With Latinos recently surpassing African Americans as the largest minority group in the US, attention has been focused on the important implications of immigration for the character and role of race in US life, including patterns of racial inequality and racial identity. This insightful new book offers a fresh perspective on immigration and its part in shaping the racial landscape of the US today. Moving away from one-dimensional views of this relationship, it emphasizes the dynamic and mutually formative interactions of race and immigration. Drawing on a wide range of studies, it explores key aspects of the immigrant experience, such as the history of immigration laws, the formation of immigrant occupational niches, and developments of immigrant identity and community. Specific topics covered include: the perceived crisis of unauthorized immigration; the growth of an immigrant rights movement; the role of immigrant labor in the elder care industry; the racial strategies of professional immigrants; and the formation of pan-ethnic Latino identities. Written in an engaging and accessible style, this book will be invaluable for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate-level courses in the sociology of immigration, race and ethnicity.

Description : Originally published in 1983. This book concentrates on the psychological factors within immigrants and on the importance of these for relations with locals and for education. It argues that immigrants experience a state of estrangement from both their own societies and from the receiving society. The educational effects of this manifest themselves partly in poor achievement, partly in poor behaviour and in dropping out of society. These are seen as the results of a diminished self-worth, a feeling of being pre-programmed to failure, and of being outsiders. This study develops a psychological model of the state of affairs and of the desirable educational measures needed for coping with it – in educational planning, curriculum development, teacher training and so on. It presents guidelines or suggestions for areas and kinds of actions, not presentating specific materials or programmes. This book fosters development of insight and understanding among teachers, policy-makers, teacher trainers and immigrants themselves.

Description : This insightful volume presents important new findings about parenting and parent-child relationships in ethnic and racial minority immigrant families. Prominent scholars in diverse fields focus on families from a wide range of ethnicities settling in Canada, China, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, and the United States. Each chapter discusses parenting and parent-child relationships in a broader cultural context, presenting within-group and cross-cultural data that provide readers with a rich understanding of parental values, beliefs, and practices that influence children’s developmental outcomes in a new country. For example, topics of investigation include cultural variation in the role of fathers, parenting of young children across cultures, the socialization of academic and emotional development, as well as the interrelationships among stress, acculturation processes, and parent-child relationship dynamics. This timely reference: • explores immigration and families from a global, multidisciplinary perspective; • focuses on immigrant children and youth in the family context;• challenges long-held assumptions about parenting and immigrant families;• bridges the knowledge gap between immigrant and non-immigrant family studies;• describes innovative methodologies for studying immigrant family relationships; and• establishes the relevance of these data to the wider family literature. Parental Roles and Relationships in Immigrant Families is not only useful to researchers and to family therapists and social workers attending to immigrant families, but also highly informative for persons interested in shaping immigration policy at the local, national, and global levels.
