Editorial Reviews

Review

?An elegant, brief introduction by Gordon Lewis gets this volume off to a nice start. Contributions are organized around the themes of origins and destinations, settlement and adaptation, and illegal migration. On the first subject, editor Palmer argues that a household's migration cycle, if it is not stopped at the outset, will continue indefinitely. A.H. Richmond and A. Mendoza demonstrate that educational deficiencies and needs put West Indians at a disadvantage in the UK and Canada vis-a-vis immigrants from the Indian subcontinent. Women migrants and their adaptability under stress provide the focus for studies by M.H. Gordon (CUNY) and A.W. Bonnet. The volume closes with studies of illegal migration by Palmer and L.S. Roney of the US Immigration and Naturalization Service.?-Choice
