Antebellum Irish Immigration and Emerging Ideologies of “America”- A Protestant Backlash
2002 0-7734-7215-0
This provocative book, which crosses disciplines, argues that the confrontation between antebellum Irish immigrants and mainstream Americans helped reshape American ideology and, in particular, the American Dream Myth. As Irish immigrants became a growing presence in the United States, American society reacted in what Dunne calls a “Protestant backlash: clerical and lay interests banded together and attempted to codify the very definition of “America” and thereby relegate Irish immigrants to society’s margins. In an exhaustive examination of self-help manuals, political pamphlets, religious tracts, newspaper editorials, and instructional novels, this study contrasts the disparities between the actions of nativists and their rhetoric of reaffirming “American” identity. It also critiques current trends in multicultural studies and posits a strong cases for studying marginalized groups from European backgrounds within the larger context of their interactions with mainstream society. “The arguments that Professor Dunne puts forth in his book are a well-reasoned and well-documented corrective to the present-day orthodoxy that simplifies and distorts the meaning and significance of ethnic Americans by consigning them all into the dustbin of ‘white male oppressors.’ . . . Perhaps we will soon move beyond what currently passes for multiculturalism to a truer, deeper, more nuanced examination of what made – and makes – America unique. I can think of no better place to begin than with Robert Dunne’s fine work.” – Peter Quinn “There is a rich historical literature on anti-Catholic sentiment in nineteenth-century America, especially for those political historians who study the amazing rise of the Know Nothing party. Americans today are largely unaware of the rioting that occurred between Protestants and Irish Catholics over such items as tax money for education and which version of the bible should be utilized in public schools. What Dunne brings to this already rich history is a literary cultural approach that helps to show how Irish Catholics reacted to Protestant attacks. . . . Dunne’s ability to show the ongoing literary battle between Protestant and Irish Catholic attempts to influence their followers reveals the larger battle over cultural supremacy and acceptance . . . . Multicultural, ethnic, literary, as well as political culture scholars will all glean something from the Irish Catholic attempt to maintain their minority identity in the midst of a Jacksonian society that was bent on the maxim that ‘the majority rules.’” – Matthew Warshauer

Central American Refugee Issue in Brownsville, Texas. Seeking Understanding of Public Policy Formulation From Within a Community Setting
1993 0-7734-2240-4
This community-based inquiry sought to gain an enriched understanding of the process by which elements of a local context attempted to influence, via agenda setting, the formulation of public policy at the federal level. Data were gathered via the qualitative methods of document review, participant observation, and interviews. Local government officials, leaders of religious and refugee advocacy groups, Immigration and Naturalization personnel, and Central Americans were key data sources. To seek meaning in two complex conceptual domains (public policy formulation and refugee policy) the inquiry process and findings are reported in the "thick description" format of a linear-analytic case study.

The aim of the book is to look at the migration experience from the insiders’ perspective.

Environment of Insecurity in Turkey and the Emigration of Turkish Kurds to Germany
2006 0-7734-5739-9
This excellent research, with particular focus on an understudied ethnic group, competently draws linkages between ethnic conflict, international migration, and individual strategies and networks. It triangulates quantitative survey data with narratives collected through in-depth interviews providing insights of Turkey’s Kurds migration experiences. Successfully applying a novel conceptual tool, ‘environment of insecurity,’ the book explains migration and ethnicity nexus in a multidimensional approach benefiting from a variety of models used in migration studies literature. Strongly erasing the borders between typologies of migrants, this study comes up with another conceptual novelty: ‘opportunity frameworks’ which can be applied to many other ethnic conflict involved migration regimes. Readers are attracted to the cunning combination of different types of data and methods: First, identifying a Kurdish place within Turkish international migratory regime; then revealing how migrants position themselves against the ethnic conflict, migration restrictions, socioeconomic and political deprivation in order to move from an absolute environment of insecurity to an environment of relative security. Analysis of Turkish Kurds international migration to Cologne comes with a succinct account of Kurdish ethnic rivalry in Turkey and a concise story of international migration from Turkey to Germany.

Ethnic Geography of Early Utica, New York. Time, Space and Community
1999 0-7734-8046-3
This is the first study which examines how each of the early immigrant communities (German, Irish, Welsh, Polish, Italian) changed the geographical shape of the city. Group identity was so strong that even a century after the first peoples began to arrive, different neighborhoods, and even larger sections of the city, retained the imprint of the immigrants. It is also the story of adaptive strategies followed by each community in responding to economic and social constraints imposed upon it. The study is oriented to the spatial perspective of the urban-cultural geographer. The internal movement of the groups is traced and the rationale for the particular directions of movement is related to physical, economic and cultural factors.

Experience of Irish Migrants to Glasgow, Scotland, 1863-1891
2007 0-7734-5515-9
This book analyses how the Irish-born, and their offspring, in one nineteenth century British city came to define and understand their Irishness through political action. It proposes that the organisation and representation of Irishness in Glasgow (and, by extension, Scotland) eventually led to a secular, even radical, ‘fusion’ of loyalties, from the time of Daniel O’Connell onwards which allowed Protestants such as John Ferguson an entry into nationalist debate. Ferguson, despite the competing claims of the Catholic Church and the drink trade, not only successfully created a Home Rule movement in the 1870s but also, in the long term, crucially fused loyalty to organised labour with his representation of Irish political identity. Based on extensive research, this work aims to give the non-Scottish reader a fuller idea of the origins of the Glasgow Irish, emphasising the great importance of Ulster connections, and to contribute to the ongoing debate on the nature of Irish political identity in urban Britain and USA.

Finnish Immigrant Experience in North America, 1880-2000
2006 0-7734-5678-3

This work complements and adds to our growing knowledge and appreciation of ethnic groups within North America.

Health Rights and Health Problems of Migrants Living in the Thai-Burma Border Region. Narcotics, Debt Bondage, and Refugee Camps
2012 0-7734-2939-5
Understanding migration is fundamental to our modern view of the world. Forced migration is one of the biggest transformative factors of our time. Health rights of migrants are embedded within human rights. Nation states and global agencies are challenged by the movement of people and their duty to uphold health and human rights of asylum seekers and forced migrants. It is important for professionals working in fields of development and migration to comprehend the complexities involved in achieving health for vulnerable populations. This book details the origins of health rights from the Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. It analyses health rights as they exist in the real world of forced migration and protracted refugee situations. Migration from Burma to Thailand represents a long established forced migration pattern and lessons are drawn from studying this situation. Moving beyond the limited and failed refugee regimes it is recommended that resources be mobilized to promote migrant self-sufficiency. Sustainable living and aid relief care needs to be administered to promote development strategies with capacity building and democratic processes within migrant groups.

By analyzing and interpreting data gathered from lectures, town-hall meetings, and interviews with the informant, the author seeks to illustrate how an immigrant’s native language and culture influence the construction of his hybrid identity as he function in different social arenas.

Urban Multi-Culture in Norway
2005 0-7734-5986-3
This is a current prime political and scholarly issue in Europe and North America, the fate of migrant youth. Instead of seeing their precarious situation in simplified cultural terms, this book argues that an understanding of their situation has to rest upon an analysis of their everyday life situation. With a focus on the mechanisms of their outsidership and their ways of dealing with it, this book develops a generative model where the different ideal types of migrant youth social organization and mentalities are demonstrated. Resting on a solid empirical study of three migrant youth contexts, a street gang, a Muslim student association, and a sports club, the analysis demonstrates how they all represent specific soluti8ons to the problem of the spatial politics of recognition and misrecognition.
