Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: New York Routledge 2018Description: x, 203p. With index.ISBN: 9781138295414.Subject(s): Urban sociology | Emigration and immigration - Social aspects | Immigrants - Social conditions | EqualityDDC classification: 305.8 Summary: Immigration and Categorical Inequality explains the general processes of migration, the categorization of newcomers in urban areas as racial or ethnic others, and the mechanisms that perpetuate inequality among groups. Inspired by the pioneering work of Charles Tilly on chain migration, transnational communities, trust networks, and categorical inequality, renowned migration scholars apply Tilly’s theoretical concepts using empirical data gathered in different historical periods and geographical areas ranging from New York to Tokyo and from Barcelona to Nepal. The contributors of this volume demonstrate the ways in which social boundary mechanisms produce relational processes of durable categorical inequality. This understanding is an important step to stop treating differences between certain groups as natural and unchangeable. This volume will be valuable for scholars, students, and the public in general interested in understanding the periodic rise of nativism in the United States and elsewhere. https://www.routledge.com/Immigration-and-Categorical-Inequality-Migration-to-the-City-and-the-Birth/Castaneda/p/book/9781138295414
