Becoming New Yorkers: Ethnographies of the New Second Generation
(Russell Sage Foundation, 2004; 448 pp.)
Almost two-thirds of New Yorkers under the age of 18 are the children of immigrants. In-depth ethnographies in this volume explore the ways in which the new second generation is adapting to, and also changing, the fabric of American culture. Among the ethnographies included are those of Graduate Center alumni Nancy Lopez (on Dominican men's high-school experiences), Dae Young Kim (on the integration of Korean Americans in New York), and Aviva Zeltzer-Zubida (on being a Russian Jewish American). Philip Kasinitz is professor of sociology at The Graduate Center and Hunter College; John H. Mollenkopf is distinguished professor of political science and sociology and director of the Center for Urban Research at The Graduate Center; and Mary C. Waters is professor of sociology at Harvard University.
