He also begins the chapter on integration by citing riots in communities with large immigrant populations in Oldham, Paris, Sydney and Stockholm. It does not occur to him to discuss how institutional or structural racism prevent immigrants from integrating. This assumption treats anti-immigrant prejudice as an inevitable reaction to immigration, rather than seeing attitudes as shaped by state policies and by anti-immigrant rhetoric promoted by some politicians and journalists.

It is hard to see why a realist approach cannot also insist that prejudice which is not confined to the working and middle classes should be vigorously resisted when it is based on false claims and xenophobic propaganda. Except in the case of refugees, an argument for or against exclusion comes down to how we weigh the interests of communities that wish to restrict migration against those of potential migrants.
Notably, these economic, cultural and environmental burdens are all amenable to social scientific study — if these perceived burdens turn out to be largely illusory, the case for restriction is greatly weakened.
Furthermore, his surprising decision in the book to ignore economic arguments for free movement deprives advocates of more open borders of some of their most compelling arguments Moreover, people who defend border controls are not simply distributing benefits and burdens by regulating immigration flows. They are advocating the use of force to prevent people from coming, a point eloquently developed by Arash Abizadeh , among others. Miller argues that border controls are not coercive on the grounds that they merely prevent immigrants from doing something they would like A major reason they take these extraordinary risks is that Europe has closed off legal routes for lodging claims to asylum.
Increasingly, states are detaining immigrants , often in abusive and squalid conditions. Those who believe that current migration regimes are basically just — in principle, if perhaps often not in practice — will welcome Strangers in Our Midst as a cogent defence of their convictions. Sadly, it will also confirm their prejudices. Read more by Alex Sager. How this person became so established in the field is utterly beyond me, though.

Meanwhile Grace and Helena Kane are being raised in strictest innocence, and both fall prey to Dennis when he enters their lives as the engineer who will bring electricity to their village by flooding the girls' Eden-like valley refuge. The struggle that ensues between Dennis and Grace, who alone opposes him, makes for great tension.

Dennis seems to have won the battle but in the end Grace has the last word in a dramatic denoument. May 01, Diane Meier rated it it was amazing. A great family drama - but the part that I most loved was the behind the scenes story about bringing electricity to Ireland. Most of us forget that much of rural Ireland operated without running water and without electricity until after the Second World War.

As he said to me once, Think Persia. This book brings it all home, as we see a country move toward the 20th Century.

I was just dying for him to get his come-uppance. Did he? That would be a spoiler! Very good book, well written and the characters really well drawn.
