Ethnic Groups in Urban Areas; Community Formation and Growth: A Selected Bibliography. Council of Planning Librarians Exchange Bibliography Series, Number 202.
Thompson, Bryan; Vance, Mary, Ed.
This bibliography deals with ethnic settlement patterns in urban areas. The emphasis is on factors that determine initial settlement, subsequent intraurban migration and community growth, and their relationship with the more general questions of urban structure and growth. The selection is by no means exhaustive, and was not compiled in any systematic manner. Most of the references are taken from the bibliography that was accumulated in connection with the author's dissertation, "Cultural ties as determinants of immigrant settlement in urban areas: a case study of the growth of an Italian neighborhood in Worcester, Massachusetts, 1875-1922."
