Description: InWhere We Live Now, John Iceland explores the ways in which immigration is reshaping American neighborhoods. In his clear and well-focused examination of residential segregation patterns, Iceland addresses these questions: What is the evidence to suggest that immigrants are assimilating residentially? Does the assimilation process look different for immigrants of different racial and ethnic backgrounds? How has immigration affected the residential patterns of native-born blacks and whites? Drawing on census data and synthesizing information from other ethnographic and quantitative studies, Iceland shows that immigrants are by-and-large becoming residentially assimilated in American metropolitan areas. While the future is still uncertain, the evidence provided in the book suggests that America's metropolitan areas are not splintering irrevocably into hostile, homogeneous, and ethnically-based neighborhoods. Instead, Iceland's findings suggest a blurring of the American color line in the coming years and indicate that as we become more diverse, we may in some important respects become less segregated.
