Reviews

`President Donald Trump's idea of a wall at the United States-Mexican border, accompanied by his desire to keep Muslims out of America, has led to heated discussions about American Identity and the Other. Maria del Mar Farina's book is an in-depth analysis of US immigration policy, with an emphasis on deportation reforms enacted since 1996. We learn how this policy has become highly politicized, and how its application has severely hurt many individuals, especially American-born children of Hispanic immigrant parents. This scholarly written, timely work is an important contribution to our understanding of these psychological/political issues that impact our societal well-being.' - Vamik D. Volkan, M. D., Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry, University of Virginia and the author of Immigrants and Refugees: Trauma, Perennial Mourning, and Border Psychology 'Candidate and now President Trump effectively demonized and denigrated Mexicans as well as Muslims, stoking fear and turning them into a threatening other for many white Americans. Weaving together the history of white nativism and explicating the interaction of psychoanalytic and sociopolitical theory, Maria del Mar Farina de Parada helps us to understand what fuels this process of othering, the injurious effects on children and families who are members of these targeted groups, the strategies that they use to survive this onslaught and the policies needed to support and protect them. It is a troubling story but a timely and important book!' - Professor Joshua Miller, Smith College School for Social Work, co-author of Racismin the United States: Implications for the Helping Professions
