A brilliant excavation of the condition we usually describe as immigration. Sayad brings to light aspects of that condition typically camouflaged or neutralized by the language itself of most academic research on immigration. He juxtaposes to this language the apparent opacity of the language of immigrants’ lived experience and helps us see its transparence and what it communicates.’ – Saskia Sassen, author of Guests and Aliens
