This book compares the post‐war politics of immigration control and immigrant integration in three liberal states characterized by sharply distinct nationhood traditions and immigration experiences.

Rather, we should approach it as a process of state transformation. This transformation is from nation-state to member state. The book explores in detail the concept of member state, arguing that it provides us with the best tool for understanding the European integration process.

European integration, immigration and the nation state: institutionalising transnational political action?

Federalism and Functionalism proposed the containment of the nation-state, while Transactionalism sought to theorise the conditions for the stabilisation of the nation-state system. One of the most influential theories of European integration is neofunctionalism, developed by Ernst B. Haas () and further investigated by Leon Lindberg (). J. Peterson, in International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences, European integration is the product of the selective pooling of national sovereignty, or ultimate jurisdiction over a body politic, by postwar European nation-states. It has yielded the European Union (EU), the most successful experiment in international cooperation in modern history. Indeed, the author provides the reader with an original framework to understand European integration as state transformation. The main argument of the book is that a shift occurred in the nature of the state over the last decades as nation-states have become member states. The book is an excellent addition to the literature on Canadian immigration. Several important historic and contemporary issues on international migration in Canada are identi ed and analyzed.
