The politics of Armenian migration to North America, 1885-1915, sojourners, smugglers and dubious citizens, David E. Gutman.

Summary
Telling the story of Armenian migration to North America in the late Ottoman period, and Istanbul's efforts to prevent it, this book shows how, much like the present, migrants in the late 19th and early 20th centuries were forced to travel through clandestine smuggling networks, frustrating the enforcement of the ban on migration. Further, migrants who attempted to return home from sojourns in North America risked debarment at the border and deportation, while the return of migrants who had naturalised as US citizens generated friction between the United States and Ottoman governments. The author sheds light on the relationship between the imperial state and its Armenian populations in the decades leading up to the Armenian genocide
