"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

Preparing for the urban future : global pressures and local forces ( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
More and more of the world's people live in urban areas, which share the same problems: unemployment, corroding infrastructure, deteriorating environment, a collapsing social compact, and weakening institutions. To ask why this is happening and what can be done, twenty-two leading social scientists and experienced public officials have pooled their experience and their research in preparation for the June 1996 United Nations conference on human settlement in Istanbul. Their collaborative effort is published in Preparing for the Urban Future: Global Pressures and Local Forces. The contributors find commonalities in the globalized economy in which all cities compete and in the mixes of squalor and splendor found in urban environments east and west, north and south. But common, too, in these accounts, are local, rather than national, solutions to urban challenges, which local community groups often view in purely local terms
