From Asian workers abused in the oil-rich Gulf states and Latinos trafficked at the US-Mexico border to African sans papiers exploited in France and sub-Saharan farmhands attacked by organized crime groups in Italy, immigrant communities have faced acute discrimination, exploitation, and violence.

The Immigrant War provides a global and accessible look at the emerging social conflict immigration has evoked. To do so, Vittorio Longhi navigates the conflicting assumptions about many immigrant communities?how they are simultaneously vital social actors fighting for their human rights and passive victims beleaguered by unrelenting antagonism?and exposes the alarmingly absent responses of many governments, which allow these huge populations to falter in a policy vacuum. Sketching this moment in global history as an immigrant war for human rights, citizenship, and equality, Longhi offers a vital rethinking of the immigration policy that needs to be drafted in order to break the chain of exploitation and provide immigrants a viable role in contemporary society.
