"This beautifully written and illustrated study is a significant intervention in the histories of photography and of immigration. It excitingly shows how the state's efforts to picture and control migrants moved from one group of subjects to the next and how technological advances called forth new forms of immigrant resistance."—David Roediger, author of How Race Survived U.S. History: From Settlement and Slavery to the Obama Phenomenon
