Description - Immigration and Integration in Urban Communities by Lisa M. Hanley

In nations across the globe, immigration policies have abandoned strategies of multiculturalism in favor of a "play the game by our rules or leave" mentality. Immigration and Integration in Urban Communities shows how immigrants negotiate with longtime residents over economic, political, cultural, and linguistic boundaries. Host communities are neither as static, nor migrants as passive, as assimilationist policies would suggest. Drawing on anthropology, political science, sociology, and geography, and focusing on such diverse cities as Washington, D.C., Rome, Los Angeles, Johannesburg, Munich, and Dallas, the contributors to this volume challenge both policy makers and academic analysts to reframe their discussions of urban migration, and to recognize the contemporary immigrant city as the dynamic, constantly shifting form of social organization it has become.
