'Neoliberal Nationalism is a masterfully executed analysis of the impact of neoliberalism and contemporary nationalism on immigration and citizenship policy across the Global North. By analyzing neoliberalism and nationalism side-by-side, Joppke once again breaks new theoretical ground. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in immigration populism.'
