"The Ethics of Immigration illuminates the field that Carens has played a pivotal role in founding. A rich and sophisticated discussion of the normative demands of migration, it is also a subtle meditation on the methodological commitments of such theorizing. Carens has written the required text for the political theory of migration." --David Owen, Professor of Social & Political Philosophy, University of Southampton "Joseph Carens's book is a masterful achievement. In strikingly accessible prose, Carens applies the principles of democracy to immigration. The results are sometimes surprising, often provocative, and always well-argued. Traversing both ideal and non-ideal theory, this is the book to read on immigration."--Jeff Spinner-Halev, Kenan Eminent Professor of Political Ethics, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill "No other author has examined the ethical imperatives and dilemmas of immigration as thoroughly as Joseph Carens. In this book he successfully blends philosophical reflections with practical illustrations and speaks to a broad audience of citizens in wealthy democracies who are troubled about their moral right to exclude immigrants from access to their territory and citizenship."--Rainer Baubock, European University Institute, Florence "Carens's long-awaited book reprises many of his founding contributions to the field while also advancing them significantly. Carens navigates deftly between grand theory and contextual analysis, between the demands of realism and those of justice, to achieve a synoptic and clarifying analysis of migration ethics. This is an optimistic work of political theory, one motivated by the author's conviction that justice is possible when democratic states pursue immigration policies 'true to their most basic commitments'."--Linda Bosniak, Distinguished Professor of Law, Rutgers University "Elegantly argued...Carens covers the plight of refugees, guest workers, and other displaced persons with nuance and sympathy."--Publisher's Weekly"Rezension:
The book captivates the reader by its precise analysis, language and arguments. Carens' writing successfully avoids any abstract theoretical demonstrations. He rather focuses on thorough examples while dealing with the complex questions on existing residence regimes and their contested ethics. ( Dr Baerbel Heide Uhl, International Journal of Refugee Law)
Caren's writes in a refreshingly calm, measured, humane voice about one of the most politically charged and morally urgent issues of our time, deftly illustrating what philosophers can add to the heated conversation. He is the leading anglophone political philosopher working on the subject of immigration, and this book is the culmination of decades of path-breaking research ... a brilliant and engaging, persuasive book, which attempts to reconcile the claims of democratic communities and the claims of migrants. ( Joseph H.Carens, The Times Literary Supplement)
