New Immigrants in New York

Book - 2001
New Immigrants in New York
Columbia Univ Pr

This acclaimed anthology brings together the top people in their respective fields to discuss the impact that immigration has had on the character of New York City and also the cultural impact that coming to a new environment has had on immigrants. Thoroughly updated to encompass the newest waves of immigration, the book now covers Dominicans, former Soviets, Chinese, and Jamaicans as well as Mexicans, Koreans, and West Africans.

Thoroughly updated to reflect changes in the composition of New York City's immigrant population, this book brings together contributions from leaders in their respective fields to show how new immigrants are transforming the city--and how New York, in turn, has affected the newcomers' lives. The contributors consider the four largest groups--Dominicans, former Soviets, Chinese, and Jamaicans--as well as Mexicans, Koreans, and West Africans. An introduction highlights the groups' commonalities and differences. The book also includes an analysis of the city's altered demographic structure and its labor market.
