Four generations of norteños : new research from the cradle of Mexican migration( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on decades of fieldwork in a high-emigration town in central Mexico, as well as nearly a thousand recent interviews, the authors investigate who migrates, how people-smuggling operates, whether border enforcement affects decisions to migrate, and migration's impact on family, health, and hometown economy. Their work sheds important new light on debates central to international migration studies. -- Back cover

Mayan journeys : U.S.-bound migration from a new sending community( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yucatán, an impoverished state in southern Mexico, has recently emerged as a significant source of US-bound migrants. Why did this state's indigenous population wait so long to enter the migration stream, and how do their experiences differ from those of earlier more traditional migrants? Mayan Journeys explores how internal migration to southern Mexico's tourist resorts serves as a springboard for international migration and how the new migrants navigate enhanced obstacles at the US-Mexico border and enter the US labor force. Drawing on an extensive 2006 survey of migrants and potential migrants in Tunkás, Yucatán, and its satellite communities in Southern California, the authors provide new evidence of the failure of US border enforcement to deter undocumented migration from Mexico"--Publisher's description

Negotiating national identity : immigrants, minorities, and the struggle for ethnicity in Brazil by Jeff Lesser( )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite great ethnic and racial diversity, ethnicity in Brazil is often portrayed as a simple matter of black or white, a distinction reinforced by the ruling elite's efforts to craft the nation's identity in its own image-white, Christian, and European. In Negotiating National Identity Jeffrey Lesser explores the role ethnic minorities from China, Japan, North Africa, and the Middle East have played in constructing a national identity, thereby challenging dominant notions of Brazilian nationality and citizenship. Seeking to realize their vision of a white Brazil, the ruling classes welcomed desirable European immigrants yet did not anticipate the potential threat of social and labor activism. In reaction, Brazilian elites recruited migrant labor from Asia and the Middle East, then expanded the definition of whiteness, encouraging the new arrivals to consider themselves white regardless of their actual race or ethnicity. Believing, however, that their ethnic heritage was too high a price to pay for the privilege of being white, many of these immigrants have created alternative categories for themselves, such as Syrian-Brazilian, Korean-Brazilian, and so on. By examining how acculturating minority groups have represented themselves, Lesser reenvisions what it means to be Brazilian. Based on extensive research, Negotiating National Identity will be valuable to scholars and students in Brazilian and Latin American studies, as well as those in the fields of immigrant history, ethnic studies, and race relations."--Amazon.ca Dec. 2013
