Faculty Book: Nancy Foner
Nancy Foner, ed.
One Out of Three: Immigrant New York in the Twenty-First Century
(Columbia University Press, 2013)
This absorbing anthology features in-depth portraits of diverse ethnic populations, revealing the surprising new realities of immigrant life in twenty-first-century New York City. Contributors show how nearly fifty years of massive inflows have transformed the city’s economic and cultural life and how the city has changed the lives of immigrant newcomers.
Foner’s introduction describes New York’s role as a special gateway to America. Subsequent essays focus on the Chinese, Dominicans, Jamaicans, Koreans, Liberians, Mexicans, and Jews from the former Soviet Union now present in the city and fueling its population growth. A concluding chapter follows the prospects of the U.S.-born children of immigrants as they make their way in New York City.
