The political and social activism of immigrants to Europe since 1945takes the spotlight in this volume. Each of the twelve chapters draws on fresh research from international scholars who coversuch conflict-ridden themes as autonomous migrant organizing and transnational activism. From Afro-Asian student protests and the sans-papiers movement to the labor unions, political parties, and feminist groups, the chapters offer a riveting look at a variety of migrant experiences in Europe. Theyalso provide compelling material for a welcome comparison of the impact of migration on European countries as diverse as Germany, France, Belgium, Sweden, Spain, and Italy
