This work examines the motivations and attitudes behind nativist sentiment in the US, revealing some of the reasons behind why immigration activists want to restrict or expand current immigration and immigrant policies. Using historical-comparative methods, Fry (sociology, Southern Nazarene University) identifies basic elements of nativist reactions and develops a set of criteria for comparing varied cases of immigrant reception. He draws on interviews with people involved in immigration reform and analysis of immigration reform agency documents and archives. c. Book News Inc.
