Book Review:The Economics of Immigration.


  • Mary Lopez Associate Professor




The Economics of Immigration by Cynthia Bansak, Nicole Simpson, and Madeline Zavodny is written as an undergraduate economics textbook, presenting theoretical and empirical approaches used in the economics of immigration. The authors did a excellent job in reaching their target audience, highlighting the important issues surrounding immigration and labor markets, and bringing attention to the growing body of research in this area. While the book might not be very interdisciplinary and lacks a significant gender component, these are not major problems since instructors can always add supplemental readings to their courses.
