Maritsa V. Poros, Assistant Professor of Social Sciences at the Illinois Institute of Technology, reviews In a New Land: A Comparative View of Immigration. Serving as a comparison of New York’s immigrants, the book touches on several topics— gender, race, generation, location, among others. For example, the author compares a single population, West Indians, across two locations: London and New York. She draws upon contextual features such as New York’s native, largely disadvantaged, black population in comparison to London’s residential segregation, racial intermarriage, employment, and others to explore the different experiences of one foreign population and their second generation offspring in two international locations.
