CHOICE ReviewThe book investigates immigrant integration at the metropolitan level, looking at the New York City; Chicago; Los Angeles; Charlotte, NC; Phoenix; San Jose, CA; and Inland Empire (Riverside and San Bernardino counties in Southern California) regions. Each chapter provides a rich description of the influence of nonprofits and political and business leaders on immigrant incorporation. Developments in each central city are described extensively, but the treatment of their respective surrounding metro areas varies considerably. Not surprisingly, the metro-wide analysis is most limited for the huge New York City and Los Angeles areas. The editors provide a useful summary chapter, identifying factors that seem to influence support for immigrant integration. The limited number of cases makes generalizations tentative, but the data support the view that immigrant voting power makes a big difference and points to evidence that greater immigrant diversity (particularly by ethnicity and social class) in a metro area diminishes racialization and increases the warmth of reception. For those seeking to promote greater immigrant integration, the metropolitan perspective is extremely valuable, and the book's very accessible writing makes it suitable for a broad audience. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty. --Andrew L. Aoki, Augsburg College
