CHOICE Review

One of the most significant trends in US communities is the growth of immigrant populations in suburban areas. This pattern is particularly important for a number of southern, western, and midwestern cities that have not historically been sites of immigrant settlement. This anthology is among the best on this subject, and will be widely read. Among its numerous topics, the book examines how economic development, housing costs, residential segregation, and local government policy shape the formation of immigrant communities in cities such as Atlanta, Austin, Sacramento, and Minneapolis-St. Paul. Chapter authors are recognized experts in their fields. Especially commendable is that they wisely distinguish between immigrants and refugees. Maps, photographs, and simple graphs and tables provide excellent visuals and enhance the text. The writing is jargon free and well edited, making the volume accessible to all relevant audiences. Students will appreciate the superb organization of each chapter. Faculty will identify national and regional trends relevant to their research. Policy makers, particularly at the city and county levels, will gain insights into government programs that have succeeded or failed to facilitate the local incorporation of immigrants. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All levels/libraries. J. Hein University of Wisconsin--Eau Claire
