Exploring the worldwide boom in immigration, this book traces the profound changes in urban areas as new arrivals have transformed inner cities and suburbs alike into bastions of new ethnic economic activity. Each chapter addresses the significance of urban space and local context in developing various ethnic economies and how ethnic economies have helped to re-create urban neighborhoods. With its international scope and rich case studies, this book will be invaluable for scholars and students alike in the fields of ethnic studies, urban studies, economic development, geography, and sociology.
