SUMMARY ô Illegal People: How Globalization Creates Migration and Criminalizes Immigrants For two decades veteran photojournalist David Bacon has documented the connections between labor migration and the global economy In Illegal People Bacon explores the human side of globalization exposing the many ways it uproots people in Latin America and Asia driving them to migrate At the same time US immigration policy makes the labor of those displaced people a crime in the United States Illegal People explains why our national policy produces even displacement migration immigration raids and a divided polarized societyThrough interviews and on the spot reporting from both impoverished communities abroad and American immigrant workplaces and neighborhoods Bacon shows how the United States' trade and economic policy abroad in seeking to create a favorable investment climate for large co. Bacon s new book does a good job of exploring the ways in which neoliberalism has affected the individual lives of immigrant workers and assessing case studies of local struggles against exploitative employers and immigration authorities He s also especially good in explaining why attempts at instituting comprehensive immigration reform particularly those that include employer sanctions and guest worker programs are inherently exploitative and should be strenuously opposed by anyone who cares anything about the rights of workers forced to migrate by international economic policy And his critiue of NAFTA and other free trade measures is especially effective in demonstrating how they ve accomplished the exact opposite of their ostensible purpose promote development in poor countries and reduce migration to the rich countries There are some problems with the book however Bacon seems to have far too sanguine a view of the nationalistdevelopmentalist import substitution regimes that dominated Latin America from the 1940s through the 1970s While this development strategy certainly had some successes it also contained a host of major problems many of these regimes were corrupt and brutally repressive of oppositional movements on the left and it had legitimately run out of steam by the 1970s As Doug Henwood and other left economists have pointed out the system had to either break in a neoliberal direction which it did or in an explicitly anti capitalistsocialist direction which it did not While Bacon mentions certain drawbacks of this strategy in passing he fails to adeuately identify its major weaknesses I know that this book isn t an academic treatise on historical or comparative political economy but these are important issues Further the book completely lacks any sort of citation system and doesn t even have an index It would have been helpful to have some sort of citations attached to his interview testimony as well as some of the facts and figures he employs so that they might be checked or followed up on by the reader The lack of an index takes an incredibly important access point away from the reader and makes it hard to go back to the book to locate specific bits of information one might want to use These problems do not affect the content of the book but they re large enough to make me dock a star from the book s score The publisher should really take care to include these features in the paperback edition of the bookThat said Illegal People will still be very useful to activists involved in struggles for immigrants and workers rights and is one of the few books on immigration to identify its major cause in the contemporary political climate the unjust structure of the international political economy To Alaska With Love of globalization exposing the many ways it uproots people in Latin America and Asia driving them to migrate At the same time US immigration policy makes the labor Legend of Enderman of those displaced people a crime in the United States Illegal People explains why Four Years in the Stonewall Brigade our national policy produces even displacement migration immigration raids and a divided polarized societyThrough interviews and Minecraft on the spot reporting from both impoverished communities abroad and American immigrant workplaces and neighborhoods Bacon shows how the United States' trade and economic policy abroad in seeking to create a favorable investment climate for large co.
