Ethnic diversity has marked the United States from its inception, and it is impossible to separate ethnicity from an understanding of the United States as a country and “Americans” as a people. Since the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act, the United States has experienced watershed transformations in its social, cultural, and ethnic geographies.

Considering the impact of these wide-ranging changes, this unique text examines the experiences of a range of ethnic groups in both historical and contemporary context. It begins by laying out a comprehensive conceptual framework that integrates immigration theory; globalization; transnational community formation; and urban, cultural, and economic geography. The contributors then present a rich set of case studies of the key Latin American, Asian American, and Middle Eastern communities comprising the vast majority of newer immigrants.

Each case offers a brief historical overview of the group’s immigration experience and settlement patterns and discusses its contemporary socioeconomic dynamics. All these communities have transformed—and been transformed by—the places in which they have settled. Exploring these changing communities, places, and landscapes, this book offers a nuanced understanding of the evolution of America's contemporary ethnic geographies.

About the Author:

Christopher A. Airriess is professor of geography at Ball State University.

Review:

Contemporary Ethnic Geographies in America is an excellent and distinctive volume. The theoretical backdrop is clear and cohesive, and each chapter provides illuminating examples of a broad and wide range of immigration and ethnic studies. This text is vital reading for social sciences and geography undergraduate and graduate students studying immigration, race, and ethnicity—no doubt, a fundamental source! (Alan Marcus, Towson University)

Many books on the market cover just one aspect of ethnicity or focus on a single ethnic group. Very few tie together the variety of ethnic experiences with detailed examples. The second edition of Contemporary Ethnic Geographies in America accomplishes this feat by pulling together some superb ethnic geographers, treating each aspect of the ethnic experience with respect, and creating an overall volume that is greater than the sum of its parts. Everyone who teaches ethnic studies should have a copy of this book close at hand. (David Kaplan, Kent State University)

This unique text examines a range of ethnic groups in both historical and contemporary context. The contributors present a rich set of case studies of the key Latin American, Asian American, and Middle Eastern American ethnic communities that comprise the vast majority of newer immigrants. Each case offers a brief historical overview of the group’s immigration experience and settlement patterns and discusses how these communities have transformed—and been transformed by—the places in which they have settled.
