Product description


'Citizenship Reimagined is an extraordinarily important and timely book. Colbern and Ramakrishnan provide us crucial insights about how democratic membership is governed at the state level in this era of partisan and ideological polarization. This is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand how the politics of race, ethnicity, and immigration are shaped by American federalism.' Daniel J. Tichenor

'US states have always played a pivotal but poorly-understood role in creating and enforcing the country's immigration policies. Citizenship Reimagined sheds light on this process, revealing how states identify and exploit their power to shape the political status of non-citizens. Amid a crowded field, Colbern and Ramakrishnan have given immigration and federalism scholars a rich array of concepts, history, and up-to-the moment empirical research that will propel both fields forward in important new directions. This book is an essential resource.' Elizabeth F. Cohen, Syracuse University

'Demonstrating that US states restrict or expand rights in cases ranging from civil rights for African Americans to women's suffrage to immigrant rights today, this book convincingly illuminates the multilevel nature of citizenship and the crucial role of state-level advocacy. California's dramatic transformation from regressive to progressive policies coupled with opposite moves elsewhere highlight the enduring tension between state and national citizenship.' Willem Maas, York University

'This provocative and important volume challenges us to rethink both theory and practice. Reframing citizenship in terms of five dimensions of rights and access, the authors stress how states can use (and have used) progressive federalism to expand belonging and opportunity. Offering a special focus on California's recent pioneering efforts to promote immigrant integration, the authors chart a path for the development of policies and models that can be scaled to the national stage. Carefully researched, convincingly argued, and remarkably well-written, this is a must-read for immigration scholars and for those concerned with how social movements can leverage local power for broader change.' Manuel Pastor, USC Dornsife

'… Citizenship Reimagined is well worth the time necessary to read a book of its length and depth. Colbern and Ramakrishnan's work succeeds in bridging citizenship studies with the growing literature on immigration federalism, offering a resource that is both theoretically intriguing and rich in historical detail for researchers and the students they teach.' Margaret M. Commin, The Journal of Federalism
