The effects of rising inequality have proven difficult to tease out, but as the United States enters a moment in history in which key policy decisions about inequality, mobility, and poverty are being made, it is important for researchers to examine this trend to learn why there is so much inequality in the United States. In this volume of The ANNALS experts examine the "social fallout" from this income imbalance.

This volume of The ANNALS addresses common misconceptions about American diversity that stem from issues surrounding race and ethnicity in census data—misconceptions such as the belief in the imminence of a majority-minority society, when in reality there are rising numbers of Americans being raised in mixed majority-minority families.

In this volume of The ANNALS the editors argue that illegal immigration arose as feature of capitalist globalization in the 20th century. The collected research papers explore the origins of undocumented migration in our contemporary global economy, and show the consequences of so-called illegal immigration both for migrants and for a number of host countries. The methodological challenges involved in studying clandestine population movements are also advanced by example.

The swell of attention surrounding human trafficking over the past two decades has driven policies and laws to combat this global issue. However, these efforts are based on assertions about human trafficking—it is huge in magnitude; it is a growing problem; and it ranks among criminal enterprises—that have no empirical evidence. Without such evidence, we lack a true understanding of the reach of human trafficking. Instead, we are left to believe sensationalized media stories, celebrity activists, and political discourse. This groundbreaking volume of The ANNALS offers empirical studies that explore the complexity, scope, and particular locales of human trafficking. The articles look beyond the misconceived portrayals of human trafficking, delving into often overseen dimensions of it, such as labor trafficking and migration, and provide breakthrough findings on victims, facilitators, and offenders. Further high-quality empirical analysis will bring about a better understanding of the nuances of human trafficking and can be used to inform future policies.

More than 30 years after President Reagan declared a war on drugs and more than 20 years after President Clinton declared a war on lawlessness, President Obama has described our criminal justice system as broken; and plagued by overaggressive policing, prison overcrowding, and abominable conditions for inmates. He also characterized the criminal justice system as an "aspect of American life that remains particularly skewed by race and wealth, a source of inequity that has ripple effects on families and communities and ultimately on our nation." The president is joined in this view by a broad and increasingly bipartisan group of Americans interested in finding ways to reform criminal justice in America. How the expansion of the U.S. criminal justice system over the last four decades has affected children and families is a critical concern for researchers and some policymakers. We know that family effects are profound, complex, variable, and often disconcerting: "low-level" and "nonviolent" offenders, for example, can sometimes be a source of disarray and violence in their own families, and "violent" and "serious" offenders are sometimes stalwart spouses and parents. This volume of The ANNALS sheds light on the prospects and perils of U.S. criminal justice reform for family life, and provides guidance for policy and future research.

Criminal justice has become a key way that citizens and communities interact with their state. And yet we know strikingly little about its political and civic effects. In this volume, scholars from several disciplines consider the consequences of criminal justice for democratic life in the United States. In particular, the contributors to this volume ask: 1. What are the consequences of America’s high rate of incarceration and criminal justice contact for citizenship and civic life? 2. What are the implications of the disparate racial impacts of these criminal justice policies for the political inclusion and voice of minorities and ability of their communities to achieve collective ends? 3. Does seeing how these policies shape the life chances of citizens and inequality of the broader society change our view of how the state operates and governs its citizens?
