Featured Resource List



Bill Ong Hing. Ethical borders : NAFTA, globalization, and Mexican migration. Temple University Press, 2010.

JV6465.H56 2010


This book examines the relationship between NAFTA, globalization, and undocumented migration. The author contends that reforming NAFTA is vital to ameliorating much of the poverty that drives undocumented immigration and argues for a spectrum of changes, including a new vision of border enforcement, a broader view of the visa system, a path to citizenship for undocumented migrants, and consideration of a guest worker program.





Robert R.M. Verchick. Facing catastrophe : environmental action for a post-Katrina world. Harvard University Press, 2010.

GE180.V47 2010


This book provides a new perspective on disaster law that is based on the principles of environmental protection.  The author argues that government must assume a stronger regulatory role in managing natural infrastructure, distributional fairness, and public risk and proposes changes to federal statutes governing environmental impact assessments, wetlands development, air emissions, and flood control, among others.
