William M. Chandler, Professor of Political Science at the University of California, San Diego, reviews The Politics of Exclusion: Institutions and Immigration Policy in Contemporary Germany. The book is about four decades of immigration policy evolution in Germany. Despite immigration to Germany, Germany did not see itself as a nation of immigrants, and thus had limitations on public policy on immigration. The book also details that many immigrants do not have political rights, despite legal status.
