Keeping with the timely theme of immigration in its various aspects, The New Deportations Delirium: Interdisciplinary Responses (Daniel Kanstroom and M. Brinton Lykes eds., NYU Press 2015), seeks to address two principal research and policy questions: How does deportation affect individuals, families, and communities? And, what is the best approach to respond to the challenges presented by unauthorized migrants? Kanstroom and Lykes have brought together a diverse group of contributors – lawyers, judges, social workers, academic researchers, clinical and community psychologists, educators, community activists, and a filmmaker to address these questions from their varied points of view and experiences. The result, according to reviewers Sarah Flinn and César Cuauhtémoc García Hernández, is a critique of current immigration practices, and a model for professionals to rely on in the fight to incorporate important human rights into our immigration system.
