  • The Immigrant Threat. / L. Lucassen

    The Immigrant Threat. / L. Lucassen

     Since the 1980s, anti-immigrant discourse has shifted away from the color of immigrants to their religion and culture, focusing on newcomers from Muslim countries that are feared as terrorists and the products of tribal societies with values fundamentally opposed to those of secular Western Europe. Leo Lucassen's The Immigrant Threat tackles the question of whether it is reasonable to believe that the integration process of these new immigrants will indeed be fundamentally different in the long run (over multiple generations) from ones experienced by similar immigrant groups in the past. For comparison, Lucassen focuses on large and problematic groups from Western Europe's past (the Irish in the United Kingdom, the Poles in Germany, and the Italians in France) and demonstrates a number of structural similarities in the way migrants and their descendants integrated into these nation states. The book emphasizes that the geographic sources of the threat have changed and that contemporaries tend to over-emphasize the threat of each successive wave of immigrants, in part because the successfully incorporated immigrants of the past have become invisible in national histories. The book also includes a discussion of old and new migrants in the U.S.

  • Through the Jungle of Death / J. Murray

    Through the Jungle of Death / J. Murray

     In 1942, as war spread in the Far East and the British, Japanese and Chinese fought ferocious battles on Burmese soil, a 11-year-old Anglo-Burmese boy and his family found themselves trapped in the path of the advancing armies. Like hundreds of thousands of other refugees abandoned by the civil administration, their only hope of survival was to try to escape on foot to India through the dense jungles of Northern Burma. Stephen Brookes was that young boy, and in this account he describes the flight from his affluent home and the fearful 3000-mile journey that partially destroyed his family. It took them via China and the Burma Road, ending in a 300-mile barefoot trek across mountain ridges, where they were ambushed by Chinese soldiers, through the terrible jungle swamps of the Hukawng Valley at the height of the monsoon and into the horror of an internment camp where they were left to rot for months. Those eight months of fear, sickness and starvation turned him from a boy into a man as he witnessed the death of his father and took on responsibility for his mother and sick brother and sister until they finally reached safety at Jhansi in India.
