Newcomers to Old Towns: Suburbanization of the Heartland

Newcomers to Old Towns: Suburbanization of the Heartland

William A. Kandel, Sociologist at the Economic Research Service, USDA, reviews Newcomers to Old Towns: Suburbanization of the Heartland, by Sonya Salamon. The book is about migration to rural Midwestern towns in Illinois that are typically characterized as close knit, agrarian, and egalitarian. Comparisons are drawn between demographically dormant towns, affluent residential towns, and mixed economy towns. The text provides several case studies of Latino migration to these types of towns.
