Book Description:
Not long ago, the integration of immigrants in host societies was perceived mostly in terms of assimilation, an overly simplistic scenario, based on which immigrants would learn the language and culture of the native population, and the rest would just follow. However, the developments of the past two decades have shown just how complex this process can be. This new book shows the diverse experiences of various groups of immigrants. The path these various immigrant groups take is dependent upon so many other factors such as their country of origin, the city they land in, the first jobs they take, ethnic and racial characteristics, neighborhoods of residence, types of education, and quality of their social networks. Such experiences also vary from one country of destination to another.
The Economic Sociology of Immigrant Life in Canada takes a fresh look at the experiences of immigrants to Canada. The contents of the book are based on more than five years of research the author has carried out in Canada and elsewhere, using a variety of data sources, from quantitative census data through specially-designed survey information, to materials derived from qualitative research. The book is structured in such a way that it can be beneficial to a wide range of readers: those interested in in-depth examination of immigration issues, those leaning more towards narrative texts, and those looking only for general research trends and theoretical and policy implications.
