Editorial Reviews

Review

Migration and integration is a complex issue, but this book rewards the reader by its clear and focused analysis. Very knowledgeable and very readable. -- Barbara John, Humboldt University, Berlin

Beyond the Gateway makes a highly significant contribution to immigration scholarship. Gozdziak and Martin have pulled together a rich collection of essays into a unique collection. Focusing on carefully selected new areas of settlement, this volume offers a wealth of information on immigrants' integration in new areas. It is a much-needed collection that will be of interest to a broad audience of academics, policy makers, and analysts. -- Cecilia Menjívar, Dorothy L. Meier Chair in Social Inequities, UCLA

Through a combination of policy considerations, theoretical discussion, and case studies, Beyond the Gateway assesses the ways that immigration into new U.S. destinations has reshaped rural, urban, and suburban landscapes. In their aim of recognizing practices that receiving communities and immigrant groups had developed to work together more effectively, Gozdziak and Martin have assembled a skilled team of social scientists who bring diverse methods and perspectives to bear on new immigrant destinations, weaving together ethnography, demography, and political science in their analyses. Edited with an eye toward interest and readability, this book will provide scholars and community leaders alike with the analytical and practical tools we need to understand how new immigration and new immigrants are likely to change a nation, enhance a future, and challenge minds. -- David Griffith, East Carolina University

Despite popular and scholarly interest, social science research simply cannot keep up with the pace by which immigrants are finding their way to new communities across the United States. This book is a welcome addition to the burgeoning literature on immigrants in new destinations. Rich case studies of immigrant settlement and a critical review of public and private integration strategies in North Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, Utah, and Minnesota–by no means 'the usual suspects'– provide insightful commentary on one of the most important issues many communities across the country now face. -- Audrey Singer, The Brookings Institution
