Afro-Caribbean Immigrants and the Politics of Incorporation: Ethnicity, Exception, or Exit
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungHow are recent minority immigrant groups faring in the political adjustment to the United States? Is racism still a serious obstacle to their political inclusion? This book explores the political experiences of Afro-Caribbean immigrants in New York City to answer these questions. The book joins a number of studies on the millions of recent immigrants to the United States from Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean, but it is one of the few to offer an in-depth analysis of the role of race in their adjustment to American political life.
