    Explores what it means to be undocumented in a legal, social, economic and historical context In this illuminating work, immigrant rights activist Aviva Chomsky shows how “illegality” and “undocumentedness” are concepts that were created to exclude and exploit. With a focus on US policy, she probes how people, especially Mexican and Central Americans, have been assigned this status—and to what ends. Blending history with human drama, Chomsky explores what it means to be undocumented in a legal, social, economic, and historical context. The result is a powerful testament of the complex, contradictory, and ever-shifting nature of status in America.

    National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist. This testament to the triumph of hope over experience, human resilience over tragedy and disaster, is the story of Valentino Achak Deng, a refugee from the Sudanese civil war. At the age of seven he is forced to flee his village and leave his family and joins a group of boys who walk hundreds of miles across their country, hoping to find safety. Many collapse from exhaustion, succumb to sickness, or die from starvation; others are devoured by hyenas, crocodiles, and lions. They dodge land mines and government soldiers. Get the picture?! It's fiction but it's all-too real... not to be humbled, enlightened, transformed. 576p.
