Editorial Reviews


"It is frequently claimed that contemporary immigration to the United States - the Post-1965 Immigration Wave - is unprecedented in its magnitude, diversity, and challenge to America's absorptive capacity. The chapters in this volume, written by leading scholars and practitioners, show the many parallels of the present situation with America's largely successful integration of earlier waves of immigrants. The central conclusion is that the openness of America's educational and economic opportunities for young immigrants, and the native-born children of immigrants, has been the key to America's successful past and can be again in the future." - Charles Hirschman, University of Washington

"Displaying a brilliant balance between lessons learned from past immigrant experiences, deep analyses of current immigrant groups, and the role of various factors affecting integration like education, culture, policies, and organizations, this is an excellent read." - Contemporary Sociology
