The Settlement Experience of Latinos in Chicago: Segregation, Speculation, and the Ecology Model.
Betancur, John J.
Social Forces, v74 n4 p1299-1324 Jun 1996
Describes Latino settlement in Chicago, 1910-90. Latino immigration (frequently "importation" of low-skill, low-wage workers) reflects U.S. domination of Latin America; consequent Latino vulnerability and low status allow real estate speculation exploiting their quasi-racial status through exclusion and market manipulation. Questions applicability to Latinos of the ecological model of residential segregation. Contains 93 references. (SV)
