Today, more than 25 state legislatures have introduced anti-immigration bills that are virtual copies of Arizona’s controversial SB 1070 “papers please” law. State Out of theUnion: Arizona and the Final Showdown Over the American Dream (Nation Books, $25.99) is journalist and historian Jeff Biggers’ account of Arizona, the famed frontier state whose conflict over immigration and state’s rights has become a national bellwether. The state is ground zero in the clash over a historic demographic shift taking place across the country with the rise of a newly empowered Latino electorate. A timely book, especially with immigration policy playing a major role in the upcoming presidential campaign.”–Kirkus Review. Biggers is the American Book Award-winning author of The United States of Appalachia, and In the Sierra Madre.
