Editorial Reviews


This book provides new insights into the contemporary US immigrant experience based on a range of research strategies. It presents a rich account of the lives of immigrants by bringing into focus the relevance of country of origin, immigration status, cultural practices, gender, family integration, urban vs. rural communities, and interactions with the social service system. It does so by exploring the lives of East Indian, Sudanese, Somali, African, Asian Indian, Korean, Irish, Egyptian, Israeli, Chinese, Mexican, and other immigrants. A wonderful introduction for those wanting to study or work with immigrant families. -- Yolanda C. Padilla, The University of Texas at Austin

Strengths and Challenges of New Immigrant Families is a multidisiplinary compendium of articles and essays about immigrants and refugee families....One value of the book is the inclusion of research on a number of understudied populations, such as Sudanese, Khmer, Somali, and Korean immigrants and refugees. -- Katherine Fennely, 2010 ― Great Plains Research

The editors have done a terrific job of compiling a wide range of complex and timely topics into a highly readable volume. Together, the chapters convey a multidimensional portrait of immigrant families that should be of interest to academics and policy makers alike. -- Cecilia Menjívar, University of California, Los Angeles
