New Immigrants in New York

Item Details

Book News
Retaining the format and theme of the 1987 edition, but soliciting entirely new contributions, Foner (anthropology, State U. of New York, Purchase) presents ten essays which separately explore how various recent immigrant groups have transformed New York City and how the city has changed the immigrants and their communities. In addition to chapters looking at migrations of Soviet Jews, Chinese, Koreans, Jamaicans, West Africans, Dominicans, and Mexicans, a pair of chapters look at the wider issues of immigration policy interactions with population patterns, as well as the demographics of labor as affected by immigration.
