A Tale of Two Cities: The Reality of Historical Differences
Smith, M. Estellie
Urban Anthropology, 4, 1, 061-072, Apr 75
A Portugese population arrived in two American cities in New England. In one, they were able to achieve a pattern of upward mobility, while in the other, they were locked into a more subordinate, far less open socio economic position. An historical explanation is offered which demonstrates the importance of historical variability as a critical factor, for without such a processional dimension, the structural features would have little significance.
