"For much of the twentieth century, Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) officials recognized that the US-Mexico border region was a special case. Here, the INS confronted a set of political, social, and environmental obstacles that prevented it from replicating its achievements at the immigration stations of Angel Island and Ellis Island. In response to these challenges, local INS officials resorted to the law--amending, nullifying, and even rewriting the nation's immigration laws for the borderlands, as well as enforcing them. In The INS on the Line, S. Deborah Kang traces the ways in which the INS on the US-Mexico border made the nation's immigration laws over the course of the twentieth century. While the INS is primarily thought to be a law enforcement agency, Kang demonstrates that the agency also defined itself as a lawmaking body. Through a nuanced examination of the agency's admission, deportation, and enforcement practices in the Southwest, she reveals how local immigration officials constructed a complex approach to border control, one that closed the line in the name of nativism and national security, opened it for the benefit of transnational economic and social concerns, and redefined it as a vast legal jurisdiction for the policing of undocumented immigrants. Despite its contingent and local origins, this composite approach to border control, Kang concludes, continues to inform the daily operations of the nation's immigration agencies, American immigration law and policy, and conceptions of this border today"--

With the railroad's arrival in the late nineteenth century, immigrants of all colors rushed to the U.S.-Mexico borderlands, transforming the region into a booming international hub of economic and human activity. Following the stream of Mexican, Chinese, and African American migration, Julian Lim presents a fresh study of the multiracial intersections of the borderlands, where diverse peoples crossed multiple boundaries in search of new economic opportunities and social relations. However, as these migrants came together in ways that blurred and confounded elite expectations of racial order, both the United States and Mexico resorted to increasingly exclusionary immigration policies in order to make the multiracial populations of the borderlands less visible within the body politic, and to remove them from the boundaries of national identity altogether. Using a variety of English- and Spanish-language primary sources from both sides of the border, Lim reveals how a borderlands region that has traditionally been defined by Mexican-Anglo relations was in fact shaped by a diverse population that came together dynamically through work and play, in the streets and in homes, through war and marriage, and in the very act of crossing the border.

This edited collection delves into the key aspects of the Trump campaign promises around immigration, trade, social and foreign policy, and unpicks how the first year of the presidency has played out in delivering them. It charts his first year from both historical and contemporary political standpoints, and in the context of comparative pieces stacking Trump’s performance against Gold-standard presidents such as Reagan, Kennedy and the last ‘outsider’, Eisenhower. Focusing in on a number of key elements of the presidency in depth, it offers a unique perspective on a presidency like no other, drawing on the overriding themes of populism, nativist nationalism and the battle for disengagement from the neoliberal power generation.

تُعتبر مؤسسة راند أهم مراكز الدراسات الاستراتيجيّة الأميريكيّة على الإطلاق، ويعدُّها البعض "العقل الاستراتيجي الأميريكي"، وهي الذراع البحثي شبه الرسمي للإدارة الأميريكيّة والبنتاغون بوجه خاص. وفي إطار الجهود الاميريكيّة لإعادة رسم الخريطة السياسيّة والاقتصاديّة للعالم الإسلامي بعد 11 سبتمبر 2001؛ صدر هذا التقرير/الكتاب. والدراسة تحاول تحديد ملامح الاستراتيجية التي يتعين على الإدارة الأميريكيّة تبنّيها من أجل "إعادة بناء الدين الإسلامي"؛ وذلك لدمجه في المنظومة الديمقراطيّة الغربيّة. وهي استراتيجيّة تُبنى أساسًا على قطع موارد الأصوليين، ودعم وتمويل الحداثيين والعلمانيين. وهذه الدراسة موجّهة باﻷصل لصانع القرار الأميريكي؛ لاستكمال البُعد المعرفي في السياسات الأميريكية في مواجهة "التطرف الإسلامي"، فيجب قراءتها في هذا السياق. والانتباه إلى أن المصطلح المستخدم ليس مُطلقًا، بل هو يُعبّر عن رؤية متحيّزة بطبيعتها لإمبرياليّة معرفيّة؛ تسعى لتشكيل "اﻵخر" المسلم طبقًا لتصوّراتها الخاصة، والتي تُسبغ عليها مطلقيّة معرفيّة وإنسانيّة.
