Abstract:

Nigerian Immigrants in the United States: Race, Identity, and Acculturation, by Ezekiel Ette, attempts to generate an interest in the study of African immigrants by looking at issues of settlement and adjustment of Nigerians in the United States. Ette's work seeks to contribute to the immigration literature and knowledge base as well as document the African narrative showing the flight of Nigerians to the United States. It describes those Nigerians who decided to live permanently in the United States, reviewing the social circumstances and behaviors of immigrants from Nigeria, and noting the stress that affects successful integration and adjustment. Those who are interested in Nigerian immigrants and immigration issues in general will find this book both insightful and revealing. -- Publisher's description.
