""This well-written and compelling story of immigrant resident relations in Miami will be read and enjoyed by lay people and scholars, and will no doubt produce stimulating discussions in classrooms throughout urban America.""â¿¿Jacqueline Hagan, author of Deciding to Be Legal: A Maya Community in Houston ""Stepick and his colleagues provide a richly-textured and highly-nuanced account of how immigrants are remaking Miamiâ¿¿a city that, in one generation, has been transformed by the influx of Latin American and Caribbean newcomers. Based on long-term direct observation, This Land Is Our Land puts relations between immigrants and established residents on center stageâ¿¿showing how both have changed as they encounter each other in schools, workplaces, and business and commerce. This well-written book is a must-read for anyone wanting to understand how immigration is changing America.""â¿¿Nancy Foner, author of From Ellis Island to JFK: New York's Two Great Waves of Immigration ""A path-setting study that explores power, context, and diversity in the culturally heterogeneous, economically vibrant, and politically dynamic city of Miami. Unpacking the complexities of race, ethnicity, and class, this lucidly written work takes the reader on rugged journeys as immigrants of different national origins strive to become American at their own pace and on their own terms. It provides fresh insight into the long-standing American ambivalence toward immigration, making a fine contribution to the burgeoning literature on immigration and inter-racial dynamics. ""â¿¿Min Zhou, co-author of Growing Up American: How Vietnamese Children Adapt to Life in the United States ""A valuable account of ethnic relations in Miami by social scientists who live and work there. Informative and useful material for urban sociologists and specialists on immigration.""â¿¿Alejandro Portes, coauthor of Immigrant America and Professor of Sociology and Director, Center for Migration and Development, Princeton University
