About this item

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 homes and communities where immigrants live and the jobs and businesses where immigrants earn their living have become increasingly diversified. Social scientists have had to expand and qualify their explanations to describe these patterns, and also utilize new forms of evidence to understand immigrant behaviors.

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, housing, attainment, community form, economic activity, leisure pursuits, and cultural influences, this book provides students of cities and immigration with 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 of immigration, race, and ethnicity, and will appeal to students and scholars of urban studies in departments of sociology and geography.
