Favoring an ethnographic approach, Tufts University chose Lives in Limbo: Undocumented and Coming of Age in America (University of California Press) by Roberto G. Gonzales, an assistant professor at the Harvard University Graduate School of Education. The book examines the results of a 12-year study that followed 150 undocumented young adults in Los Angeles. Gonzales relies on these results to craft a portrait of the two million undocumented immigrants -- out of 11 million total -- who have lived in the United States since childhood. [Roberto G. Gonzales is a new UCI faculty member and alumnus.]
