Annotation

<div><p>"An urgent, important must-read."--Jeff Chang, author<i>Can't Stop Won't Stop: A History of the Hip-Hop Generation</i></p><p>In<i>Nadie es ilegal</i>, Mike Davis and Justin Akers Chacon expose the racism of anti-immigration vigilantes and put a human face on the immigrants who daily risk their lives to cross the border to work in the United States. Countering the mounting chorus of anti-immigrant voices,<i>Nadie es ilegal</i>debunks the leading ideas behind the often-violent right wing backlash against immigrants, revealing their deep roots in US history, and documents the new civil rights movement that has mounted protests around the country to demand justice and dignity for immigrants.</p><p><i>Nadie es ilegal </i>features moving, evocative photos from award-winning photographer Julian Cardona.</p><p><b>Justin Akers Chacon</b>is a professor of US history and Chicano studies in San Diego, California. He has contributed to the<i>International Socialist Review</i>and the book<i>Immigration: Opposing Viewpoints</i>.</p><p><b>Mike Davis</b>is a historian, activist, and author of many acclaimed books, including<i>City of Quartz</i>,<i>The Monster at Our Door</i>, and<i>Planet of Slums</i>. Davis teaches in the Department of History at the University of California at Irvine. He received a 2007 Lannan Literary Award for Nonfiction.</p></div>
