"This book could not be more timely. It is a must-read for anyone who seeks to understand the role of immigration in American party politics. Michael LeMay and Scot Zentner offer a careful, clear, and candid assessment of where we are, as a nation, in our political life today."
— Brian P. Janiskee, California State University, San Bernardino
Party and Nation: Immigration and Regime Politics in American History is an illuminating and uniquely valuable study examining the role of immigration as an issue in partisan electoral competition in U.S. history. Zentner and LeMay provide a sweeping, incisive treatment of the interplay between political parties and immigration in the country’s history. In doing so, the authors cast brilliant light on how Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 presidential election should be viewed in the context of American history, and offer penetrating insights into some of the deepest debates in contemporary American political life.
