Immigration and the City, Paperback / softback Book


The majority of immigrants settle in cities when they arrive, and few can deny the dynamic influence migration has on cities.

However, a one-size-fits-all approach cannot describe the activities and settlement patterns of immigrants in contemporary cities.

The communities in which immigrants live and the jobs and businesses where they earn their living have become increasingly diversified.

In this insightful book, Eric Fong and Brent Berry describe both contemporary patterns of immigration and the urban context in order to understand the social and economic lives of immigrants in the city.

By exploring topics such as residential patterns, community form, and cultural influences, this book provides a broader understanding of how newcomers adapt to city life, while also reshaping its very fabric.

This comprehensive and engaging book will be an invaluable text for students and scholars of immigration, race, ethnicity, and urban studies.
