Description - Cousins and Strangers by Jose C. Moya
More than four million Spaniards came to the Western Hemisphere between the mid-19th century and the Great Depression. Unlike that of most other Europeans, their major destination was Argentina, not the United States. Presenting original research within a broad comparative framework, Jose C. Moya examines immigration to Argentina, one of the world's primary "settler" societies. Moya moves between micro- and macro-analysis to illuminate the immigration phenomenon. Material from immigrant associations, national and village archives, and interviews with surviving participants in Argentina and Spain inform his discussion of the origins of Spanish immigration, residence patterns, community formation, labour and cultural cognitive aspects of the immigration process. In addition, he provides material on other immigrant groups in Argentina and gives a critique of major issues in migration studies.
