"[This] analysis of immigration and immigrant policies in Japan throws an interesting light on the interaction between national government, local authorities and civil society, and explains why national policy changes-and not just in these policy fields-have only been effected at margins."-Reinhard Drifte, Asian Affairs(March 2015) "Deborah J.Milly's New Policies for New Residents: Immigrants, Advocacy, and Governance in Japan and Beyond is an important contribution to the literature on immigrant integration, providing a new framework for considering the interplay between civil society groups and different levels of government in responding to the challenges created by the reality of immigrant communities. The implications of this research are interesting for immigrants, immigrant advocacy groups and local governments in immigrant-receiving communities, suggesting that there are ways to use the tools of democracy at both the national and local level to promote inclusion of immigrants in local decision making."-Betsy Brody,Pacific Affairs(vol. 89, no. 1) "In New Policies for New Residents, Deborah J. Milly examines the complex interactions and networks that take shape among local and national interest groups, elected officials, bureaucrats, and, in some cases, international policymakers. The sophistication of her treatment is remarkable. I felt I came away from this book with a real understanding of how policies are made."-Gregory Kasza, Indiana University, author of One World of Welfare: Japan in Comparative Perspective "New Policies for New Residents is ambitious and smart. Deborah J. Milly embeds her subject capably in several major scholarly literatures and scrutinizes her implicit hypotheses thoroughly."-Anthony M. Messina, John R. Reitemeyer Professor of Political Science, Trinity College, author of The Logics and Politics of Post-WWII Migration to Western Europe
