9780745684697: The Rise of the New Second Generation (Immigration and Society)

In this age of migration, more and more children are growing up in immigrant or transnational families. The "new second generation" refers to foreign-born and native-born children of immigrants who have come of age at the turn of the twenty-first century. This book is about this new generation in the world�s largest host country of international migration � the United States.

Recognizing that immigration is an intergenerational phenomenon � and one that is always evolving � the authors begin by asking "Do members of the new second generation follow the same pathways taken by the 'old' second generation?" They consider the relevance of assimilation approaches to understanding the lived experiences of the new second generation, and show that the demographic characteristics of today's immigrant groups and changing social, economic, and cultural contexts require new thinking and paradigms. Ultimately, the book offers a view of how American society is shaping the life chances of members of this new second generation and how today's second generation, in turn, is shaping a new America.

Designed as a rich overview for general readers and students, and as a concise summary for scholars, this book will be an essential work for all interested in contemporary issues of race, ethnicity, and migration.

Carl L. Bankston III is Professor of Sociology at Tulane University

Review:

"A learned overview of the history of immigration to America and of the main theories advanced to explain its pattern of adaptation. An up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of the research literature on immigrants and their children make this book a valuable reference tool."
Alejandro Portes, Princeton University

"Zhou and Bankston convincingly argue that today's second generation faces new challenges that make the path to becoming American more variegated than in the past. They also remind us that America is fundamentally changing as the new second generation comes of age."
Jennifer Lee, University of California, Irvine

"The future of American society is very much tied to its success in integrating the 'second generation.' Anyone who wants to understand the challenges involved needs to read this vital book."
Richard Alba, The City University of New York
