Incorporating the sweeping changes that have followed the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the updated Immigration Law and Policy mixes theory, policy, and politics with practice-oriented materials to provide an overview of immigration law and the Constitution. Topics covered include inadmissible aliens, admission procedures, deportation, refugees, undocumented aliens, relief for deportable aliens, and citizenship. Adopted at more than 140 U.S. law schools since its initial publication, the book focuses on policy questions, fact problems, and simulation exercises. The new edition also contains a revised chapter on immigration and national security and new information on the immigration debate, which discusses issues such as history, moral philosophy, race, culture, language, economics, population and the environment, politics, and the concept of home. The book offers a new simulation exercise in which the student plays the role of an attorney interviewing a prospective asylum claimant. It also provides detailed coverage of topics such as the recent Supreme Court decisions in Rasul v. Bush, Hamdi v. Rumsfeld, Clark v. Martinez, and Leocal v. Ashcroft; the Bush guest-worker proposal; caps on H-1B temporary workers; changes to the visa waiver program; domestic violence; and the U.S.-Canada safe third country agreement.

Forced Migration: Law and Policy includes materials on asylum, refugees, the Convention Against Torture, temporary protection schemes, and a variety of related topics. The principal focus is U.S. law and policy, but the authors have leavened the mix with comparative materials from a variety of countries. This new casebook is based on the chapter on refugees and asylum in the Immigration and Citizenship casebook that three of the authors have co-authored for some time. They have welcomed Maryellen Fullerton to their ranks for this project (and for the next edition of the Immigration and Citizenship casebook as well), and the four authors have drawn on that chapter for the Forced Migration volume. But as the title suggests, this new casebook not only significantly reorganizes and expands that material, but also reflects the authors? effort to rethink the evolving conceptual architecture of this field. The book is designed for use in a three-hour law school course, but with judicious paring can be readily used for a two-hour course or as the foundation of a seminar.

The third edition of Refugee Law and Policy, which includes all legal developments through mid-2006, provides a thoughtful scholarly analysis of refugee law, and related protections such as that available under the Convention against Torture. The book is rooted in an international law perspective, enhanced by a comparative approach. Starting with ancient precursors to asylum, the casebook portrays refugee law as dynamic across time and cultural contexts.Although Refugee Law and Policy is directed to students of U.S. law, it draws on the legislation, jurisprudence and guidelines of other Refugee Convention and Protocol signatories, including Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. The casebook is up to date on developments to harmonize refugee policy within the European Union, and includes discussion of relevant E.U. directives. In its treatment of U.S., as well as global trends, Refugee Law and Policy examines and contrasts some of the most controversial contemporary issues in refugee law, such as the denial of access to the territory of the country of asylum, through use of expedited removal and similar ?accelerated? procedures, the increased use of detention, and the ongoing debate over gender-based claims for protection. Refugee Law and Policy also compares current trends in refugee law to parallel trends in human rights and humanitarian and international criminal law, with special reference to the work of the International Tribunals for Yugoslavia and Rwanda. The materials Musalo, Moore and Boswell present in the book are more fully examined through the extensive use of notes and comments, which also serve to highlight essential themes and concepts of the text and to make them more accessible to the reader. Since the casebook addresses both substance and procedure, with a focus on practice as well as theory, it is an excellent text not only for students, but for practitioners and those in government agencies as well.
