Rutgers University Press published Professor Robyn Rodrigez’s book "In Lady Liberty's Shadow: The Politics of Race and Immigration in New Jersey".

The book, "In Lady Liberty’s Shadow", examines popular white perceptions of danger represented by immigrants and their children, as well the specter that lurks at the edges of suburbs in the shape of black and Latino urban underclasses and the ever more nebulous hazard of (presumed-Islamic) terrorism that threatening to undermine “life as we know it.”
