Kasinitz, Philip; Mollenkopf, John; Waters, Mary C.
International Migration Review, v36 n4 p1020-36 Win 2002
Examines the incorporation of second generation immigrants in New York City, asserting that their experiences are shaped by the history of immigration among Whites, predominance of minorities in the city's population and institutions today, and interactions among immigrants and native minority groups. Discusses school and work, intergroup contact and conflict, reassessing segmentation and assimilation, the positive impact of institutions on minority mobility, and the creation of hybrid minority cultures.
