Creating diversity capital : transnational migrants in Montreal, Washington, and Kyiv by Blair A Ruble( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do urban communities accommodate this century's massive transnational migrations? This volume seeks clues about how a city's capacity for urban social sustainability, termed "diversity capital," may expand under such conditions. The author, Blair A. Ruble, examines three cities, now receiving large numbers of new immigrants, that have long histories of division into just two communities of language and race: Montreal, Washington, and Kyiv. "The growing presence of individuals who do not fit into long-standing group boundaries fundamentally alters the social, cultural, and political contours of traditionally bifurcated metropolitan regions," writes Ruble. "How does that presence change perceptions and institutions?" "Creating Diversity Capital" approaches this topic in terms of how the new immigrants live, work, and go to school and describes how the politics in each of these cities has changed, or failed to change, in the face of the new demographics. A special feature is the use of important new information on Kyiv from a set of surveys conducted by the Kennan Institute in 2001-2
Immigration and integration in urban communities : renegotiating the city( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Immigration and Integration in Urban Communities shows how immigrants negotiate with longtime residents over economic, political, cultural, and linguistic boundaries. Drawing on anthropology, political science, sociology, and geography, and focusing on such diverse cities as Washington, D.C., Rome, Los Angeles, Johannesburg, Munich, and Dallas, the contributors to this volume challenge both policy makers and academic analysts to reframe their discussions of urban migration and to recognize the contemporary immigrant city as the dynamic, constantly shifting form of social organization it has become."--Jacket
Composing urban history and the constitution of civic identities( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work tells the story of how fractured urban communities sometimes succeed and sometimes fail at creating a way of life embracing the many varieties of people and institutions that make cities both urban and urbane. The volume studies nine cities long divided by race, nationality, class, and religion: Washington, DC, Kaliningrad, St Petersburg, L'viv, Prague, Vienna, Berlin, Barcelona and Riga. All have undergone greater or lesser transitions from authoritarian to democratic forms of government, creating new needs and opportunities to shape a civic identity. The contributors study these cities' presentations of their own history as embodied in everything from museum exhibits to architecture to street names. Do a city's efforts at material renewal and reform reflect and promote an inclusive, pluralistic self-image that supports nascent democratic institutions, or an exclusionary one that claims all the city for some particular group? Drawing on the experiences of 50 years, the book shows how the emergence of pluralistic images of the past, present, and future can open the way for more pluralistic understandings of power and social relations
Money sings : the changing politics of urban space in post-Soviet Yaroslavl by Blair A Ruble( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cities after the fall of communism : reshaping cultural landscapes and European identity( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cities after the Fall of Communism" traces the cultural reorientation of East European cities since 1989. Analyzing the architecture, commemorative practices, and urban planning of cities such as Lviv, Vilnius, and Odessa, the contributors to this volume demonstrate how history may be selectively reimagined in light of present political and cultural realities. These essays show that while East European cities gravitate nostalgically toward Habsburg, Baltic, Imperial Russian, and Germanic pasts, they are also embracing new urban identities grounded in ethnic-national, European, Western, and global contexts. Ultimately, the editors argue that one can see a 'New Europe' taking shape in these cities, where a strained discourse between different versions of the past and variously envisioned futures is being set in stone, steel, and glass
Migration, homeland, and belonging in Eurasia( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Migration, Homeland, and Belonging in Eurasia examines patterns of migration and sheds new light on government interests, migrant motivations, historical precedents, and community identities. The contributors come from a variety of disciplines: political science, sociology, history, and geography. The initial chapters offer overall assessments of contemporary migration debates in the region. The following chapters feature individual case studies that highlight continuity and change in migration debates in the imperial and the Soviet periods. Several chapters treat particular topics in Central Eurasia and the Far East, such as the movement of ethnic Kazakhs from Mongolia to Kazakhstan and the continuing attraction of migrants to Siberian cities that are believed to be economically unsupportable."--Jacket
