Min and his contributors investigate the differences and similarities between the immigrant groups from the earlier 'classical' period of immigration into the US and from the post-1965 contemporary period. In particular, they analyze trends in anti-immigrant attitudes and actions, changes in settlement patterns, entrepreneurship and business patterns, ethnic diversity, immigrant women's work, the intergenerational transmission of culture, and the naturalization process. The authors draw historical comparisons between the successive phases of immigration and the impact that they have had on evolving race relations in America. The work will be a valuable resource for instructors and researchers in the fields of immigration, race and ethnic studies, minorities and public policy, urban studies, ethnic history, demography, human geography, and sociology.
