Help me study for my Sociology class. I’m stuck and don’t understand. PART ONE: Short Answers Drawing particularly from the lectures, section discussions, and assigned readings, please answer the following short answer questions thoroughly but concisely (each answer should be 300-400 words in length or roughly 1.5 pages with Times New Roman 12 pt). Make sure to provide proper documentation (footnotes, quotes, examples) for your answers. The strongest answer is one that draws on the broadest range of relevant readings, lectures, films, and newspaper articles. 1. Michael Walzer contends that “Without the right to exclude, there could not be communities of character, historically stable, ongoing associations of men and women with some special commitment to one another and some special sense of their common life” (62).a. Explain, according to Walzer, how and why the flight of persons seeking to escape persecution and violence might alter the right of states to exclude migrants? b. Consider the specific circumstances of flight, for example, whether a person arrives as an asylum seeker or instead first goes to a neighboring safe country [e.g., from Syria to Jordan]), as well as any history linking the country of immigration with the country of origin, affect the obligation to accept refugees? Compare Walzer v Betts and Collier on the obligations owed to asylum seekers v refugees.2. What are the factors that lead migrations, once initiated, to persist? Your answer should include but is not limited to, examples from the week 2 articles on Guatemala and Mali, the week 4 readings from Lopez and Gabaccia as well as lectures and that will demonstrate your understanding of the concept of “cumulative causation” (page 20 in Beyond Smoke and Mirrors).3. According to Daniel Tichenor, left-right coalitions that promote expansionary immigration policies are a recurrent feature of American immigration history. Why do those left-right coalitions arise? What are the nature and the sources of the conflicts that arise in these left-right, expansionary coalitions? And which of the four facets of the liberal state, identified by Hampshire, do the left-right, expansionist coalitions exemplify and why? PART TWO: Essay QuestionPlease answer the following question in an essay of at least 5 typed pages (1,000-1,500 words). Make sure to provide proper documentation (footnotes, quotes, examples) for your answers. The strongest answer is one that draws on the broadest range of relevant readings and lectures. In Return to Aztlan, the authors write that poor immigrants “may be poor in financial resources, but they are wealthy in social capital, which they can readily convert into jobs and earnings in the United States.” (170-171). Drawing on lectures and readings by Massey et al, Hernandez-Leon, Hagan, and Waldinger as well as the films, “The Sixth Section” and “My town”, this essay should: (a) define social capital; (b) discuss the factors that might promote or constrain the emergence of social capital; (c) explain how and why the migrants’ social capital helps them fill structural holes in the workplace; (d) distinguish the community from individual migration social capital and explain how the growth of immigrant populations generates community-wide resources that help solve the everyday problems of migration. An effective answer will provide relevant examples from the many cases of specific sending and receiving communities discussed in readings and lectures.* Note: Simply indicate the last name of the author, the publication date, and the page number if you quote a reading in your essay (e.g. Walzer 1983: 8).
