With more than a million immigrants from Latin America and the Caribbean, Miami, Florida, boasts the highest proportion of foreign-born residents of any US city. Charting the rise of Miami as a global city, Elizabeth Aranda, Sallie Hughes, and Elena Sabogal provide a panoramic study of the changing dynamics of the immigration experience. The authors move easily between an analysis of global currents and personal narratives, examining the many factors that shape the decision to emigrate and the challenges faced in making a new home. Offering a wealth of new insights, their work demonstrates why Miami is such an exceptional laboratory for studying the social forces and local effects of globalization on the ground.

About the Author:

Elizabeth M. Aranda is associate professor of sociology at the University of South Florida.

Review:

A groundbreaking [book].... Through its detailed analysis of the US city that includes the largest fraction of foreign-born people among its residents, Making a Life in Multiethnic Miami offers readers a glimpse into the future. (Steven J. Gold Social Forces)

This multidisciplinary text will be indispensable for any serious scholar of immigration.... Essential. (Ronald J. Angel Ethnic and Racial Studies)

Highly informative.... This book reveals the ethnic and social complexity underlying superficial images.... Making a Life in Multiethnic Miami represents an important contribution to our understanding of the growing phenomenon of transnationalism for individuals, families, and entire communities. (Choice)

An important contribution to both the place-specific literature on Miami as well as the wider fields of migration, transnational, and urban studies.... Facilitated by a skillful interweaving of quantitative data sources with participant observation, interviews, and focus-group data.... This book’s efforts to disaggregate immigrant experience in [Miami] with attention to national origin, race, class, gender, language ability, and legal status is a refreshing change and much-needed perspective.
(Patricia Silver Centro Voices)

A methodologically rich and theoretically sophisticated study that vividly contextualizes modern processes of migration and immigrant incorporation.

(Maria Aysa-Lastra Contemporary Sociology)
