Theoretical perspectives on immigrant integration -- Mexican immigration and the development of the Los Angeles metropolitan area -- Statistical analysis of Mexican immigrants' integration in the metropolitan Los Angeles area -- Economic integration : mobility, labor niches, and low-end jobs -- Social integration : building a family, a community, and a life -- Cultural integration : redefining identities in a diverse city -- Political integration : from life in the margins to the pursuit of recognition -- Public policies and Mexican immigrant integration in the city and county of Los Angeles
"Making Los Angeles Home examines the different integration strategies implemented by Mexican immigrants in the Los Angeles region. Relying on statistical data and ethnographic information, the authors analyze four different dimensions of the immigrant integration process (economic, social, cultural, and political) and show that there is no single path for its achievement, but instead an array of strategies that yield different results. However, their analysis also shows that immigrants' successful integration essentially depends upon their legal status and long residence in the region. The book shows that, despite this finding, immigrants nevertheless decide to settle in Los Angeles, the place where they have made their homes"--Provided by publisher
