9780195437829: Immigrant Geographies of North American Cities

Immigrant Geographies of North American Cities is unique in that most chapters are written by both an American and a Canadian scholar, drawn from among the top scholars in both countries. This textbook gives students access to a wide variety of scholarly perspectives, to help create a foundation for their study and research. This book also fills a gap in scholarly literature on immigrant geographies, by providing a text book that compares and contrasts immigrant experiences in the Unites States those experiences in Canada.

Part I examines the history of immigration in both countries, and the current immigration situation in the major receiving centres in both countries.

Part II examines the imprint of immigration on North American cities and suburbs by looking at the barriers and opportunities immigrants face in obtaining accessing housing, achieving socioeconomic and economic parity with the native-born population, access to quality health care, and improving rates of political incorporation. Part II also looks at the settlement patterns of newly arrived immigrants, compares current patterns to historical trends, and evaluates the role that gender plays in forming these patterns.

Part III examines the specific patterns of immigration for four non-European immigrant groups. The first three chapters in Part III look at the experiences of Asian, Latin American, and Black immigrants by comparing and contrasting specific countries of origin and specific receiving centres for each group in both Canada and the United States. The last chapter focuses on cross border migration between Canada and the United States and the impact that these immigrants have on their new countries.

She is a Professor at the Asian Pacific American Studies/School of Social Transformation, and School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning in the Arizona State University, USA.

She is the author or co-editor of three scholarly books, and has about 70 other academic publications. Audrey Kobayashi completed a BA and MA at the University of British Columbia, and she completed a PhD at UCLA in 1983. She taught in geography and East Asian studies at McGill University from 1983 to 1994, when she came to Queen's, initially as Director of the Institute of Women's Studies (1994-1999) and thereafter as Professor of Geography. She has spent time as a visiting professor at the University of British Columbia, University College London, and, most recently, Canterbury University, in Christchurch, New Zealand. In 1994, she was a Fulbright fellow at the Migration Policy Institute in Washington, DC.

Review:

"This book is unique as it draws together a variety of scholarly perspectives for the first time on a major topic - immigrant geographies - in two multi-ethnic countries, offering both American and Canadian scholars and students a foundation text for their study and research." --Dr Richard Wright, Dartmouth University

"The authors are top-rate. Anyone skimming the list of contributors will be impressed. The editors have brought together some of the best scholars working in the field of critical immigration studies." --Dr Minelle Mahtani, University of Toronto

"A range of truly innovative and cutting-edge research on immigration and its spatial dimensions in North America is presented here." --Dr Pablo S. Bose, University of Vermont
