Choice Review

A detailed assessment of the number of undocumented immigrants to the US (primarily, though not exclusively, those migrating from Mexico). The contributors also analyze, on the basis of a wide variety of data sources,the impact of the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) on the size and flow of the "undocumented population." The collection of papers (most of them multiauthored) begins with discussions on conceptualization and measurement. The volume continues with analyses of the stock and flow of undocumented immigrants, mostly during the 1980s. The final chapter gives a synopsis of the separate findings and an assessment of the impact of IRCA. The authors are experienced demographers and sociologists specializing in the study of immigration and ethnicity. The papers are well written and methodologically quite sophisticated. Recommended for graduate students and faculty in demography, ethnic relations, and Mexican American studies. J. De Vries Carleton University
