Tyler Cowen, who writes one of my favourite blogs, Marginal Revolution, has this to say about Immigrants: Your Country Needs Them: 

This work is the single best non-technical defense of a liberal immigration policy. What I liked most was how
it put U.S. debates in a broader context; most American sources don’t
do this. For instance how normal or extreme is the American experience
compared to other histories of absorbing immigrants? The book is original in this regard, yet without moving beyond easily
understood arguments.

If you’re clicking through from his site, here are previews of Immigrants’ contents pages, introduction, and index, and reviews by The Economist, FT and other publications are reproduced in previous posts below.
