Description:

Marcha surveys forces that have given shape and power to the contemporary immigrant rights movement in Chicago, a city with longstanding historic ties to immigrant activism. Positing Chicago as a microcosm of the immigrant rights movement, these essays plumb an extraordinarily rich set of data regarding recent immigrant rights activities, defining the cause as a panethnic, transnational movement.
