Praise For The Immigrant Threat: The Integration of Old and New Migrants in Western Europe since 1850 (Studies of World Migrations)

"This book is an important addition to the literature on integration in Western Europe, and draws on a balanced selection of key works that have contributed to an understanding of the impact migration processes have on both the host society and on the migrants themselves. . . . With a historian's eye for comparative detail that links the past and the present, Lucassen has written a book that shows how perceptions of migrants as problematic and threatening to the host nation are not a new phenomenon."--Patterns of Prejudice
