An Enduring Vision: The Melting Pot That Did Happen.
Portes, Alejandro
International Migration Review, v34 n1 p243-48 Spr 2000
Discusses the 1963 book, "Beyond the Melting Pot," which argued that the melting pot never happened and neither assimilation nor cultural pluralism occurred (at least in New York City). Concludes that this is a landmark book because it challenges the canonical assimilation story, provides a new set of standards for expert knowledge in the field, and offers contemporary relevance.
