The Pilipinos in America: Macro/Micro Dimensions of Immigration and Integration
Antonio J.A. Pido
This book presents a comprehensive look at the Pilipino immigration experience to the United States. The Pilipinos in America tells who the immigrants are before they migrated, and why they migrated to the U.S. It does more than just examine the relationships between the Pilipino immigrants with Americans – it examines the relationships between the Philippines and the United States and the existing world situation that influences those relationships. The interaction of forces emerging from macro and micro levels is seen as critical in understanding the institutional, behavioral, and attitudinal factors that operate among immigrants in the new environment and in race and ethnic relations.
