David Griffith, American guestworkers: Jamaicans and Mexicans in the U.S. labor market, Pennsylvania State University Press, c2006.

HD8081.M6G75 2006

 

The H-2 program, originally based in Florida, is the longest running labor-importation program in the country. Over the course of a quarter-century of research, the author studied rural labor processes and their national and international effects. In this book, he examines the socioeconomic effects of the H-2 program on both the areas where the laborers work and the areas they are from, and, taking a uniquely humanitarian stance, he considers the effects of the program on the laborers themselves.

 

 

Michael J. Trebilcock and Ronald J. Daniels, Rule of law reform and development: charting the fragile path of progress, Edward Elgar, c2008.

K3171.T74 2008

 

This text addresses a number of key issues regarding the relationship between the rule of law and development. It presents an inquiry into the current orthodoxy that the rule of law is the panacea for the world's problems. The authors chart the progress of law reforms both in overall terms and in specific policy areas such as the judiciary, the police, tax administration and access to justice, among others. They accept that the rule of law is necessarily tied to the success of development, although they propose a set of procedural values to enlighten this institutional approach. The authors propose a rethink of law reform strategies and offer some conclusions about the role of the international community in the rule of law reform.
