African Immigrant Families in Another France

African Immigrant Families in Another France

Jean Beaman of Purdue University reviews African Immigrant Families in Another France. This book illustrates the structural and cultural markers which characterize these immigrants’ integration experiences. Employing a “cultural-materialist framework,” Bass argues that African immigrants’ experiences of integration into French society, or lack thereof, reflect a combination of cultural and structural factors, including values, beliefs, economic resources, and labor market structures.
