""These superb essays illuminate the fascinating process of absorbing West Indian immigrants into New York City's multicultural but racially divided social fabric... They explore how gender, transnational networks, class, economic restructuring, and above all racial stereotyping have affected these black immigrants as they struggle for a better life and how their struggles have in turn influenced the contours of the larger society. The result is a model of multi-disciplinary analysis.""â¿¿John Mollenkopf, co-author of Place Matters: A Metropolitics for the 21st Century ""Islands in the City is a comprehensive collection of the recent findings of the foremost scholars in this field. The premier researchers on West Indians in New York City discuss migration from historical, statistical, theoretical, and experiential points of view. This volume will be used as a model for understanding migration in other areas and it will have importance beyond its field.""â¿¿Wallace Zane, author of Journeys to the Spiritual Lands: The Natural History of a West Indian Religion ""Nancy Foner has pulled together excellent essays by the leading scholars of the emerging study of West Indians in the United States. Islands in the City is a welcome book because of its informative essays on gender, occupation, and culture, to name but a few.""â¿¿David Reimers, co-author of All the Nations Under Heaven: An Ethnic and Racial History of New York City ""West Indians sit right at the center of the crucial divides of race, class, nationality, nativity, gender, generation, and identity. The insights of this book teach us much of what we need to know about our changing nation.""â¿¿Jennifer Hochschild, author of Facing Up to the American Dream: Race, Class, and the Soul of the Nation
