Like other books in this series, this title uses a question-and-answer format to delve into a noteworthy topic, in this case, immigration. Initial queries can be blunt ("Why don't unauthorized immigrants' stand in line' to enter legally?") and initial answers just as short: "For many immigrants, there may be no clear' line' to stand in." Eastman (Shaping the Immigration Debate) writes with a generally positive attitude toward undocumented citizens, supporting her assertions with research. Each discussion is between two and five pages, with occasional charts and tables and additional pages of further reading. General topic areas include labor and employment, crime/public safety, children, and policies and politics.
VERDICT Useful for high school or college projects or for general readers seeking more information on emotionally charged topics.
