Illegal, Alien, or Immigrant: The Politics of Immigration Reform

By Lina Newton | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

The evolution of this book benefited from the support of several people. My husband, best friend, and scholar of American politics in his own right, Anthony Salvanto, deserves first mention. He brought a sharp and critical eye to the manuscript as I worked to clarify the main arguments. I am grateful to him for his uncanny ability to see clarity in spaces where I often see distracting complexity. He has been a wonderful (if sometimes captive) audience, and has served as a constant sounding board for my ideas. I am fortunate to have his intellectual and emotional support in all of my endeavors.

Three people have been elemental to ensuring that the project did not languish. Jane Junn at Rutgers University made herself available to read the inelegant versions and graciously shared her knowledge of American politics and literature on race, ethnicity, and immigration. I thank her for her humor and her generosity of time and spirit. Anne Schneider at Arizona State University was also a champion of the project, as was Helen Ingram, who has continued to be a valuable mentor. She is retiring this year, and I sincerely see my own professional successes as a tribute to her outstanding and unwavering support.

Others who deserve mention and thanks for their assistance with substantive and technical aspects of this project include Dan Tichenor from Rutgers University and my colleague at Hunter College, Andy Polsky, each of whom offered helpful critiques of the proposal. llene Kalish of New York University Press has been consistently enthusiastic about this project, and I appreciate her expert counsel and humor. I am likewise grateful to the anonymous reviewers whose insights and thoughtful criticisms served to improve the work.

This project required time to complete, and time is expensive. The production of the manuscript would not have been possible without funding from Hunter Colleges Gender Equity Project. I also benefited from funding from the City University of New York's PSC-CUNY grant program. In
