Strangers No More is the first book to compare immigrant integration across key Western countries. Focusing on low-status newcomers and their children, it examines how they are making their way in four critical European countries–France, Germany, Great Britain, and the Netherlands–and, across the Atlantic, in the United States and Canada. This systematic, data-rich comparison reveals their progress and the barriers they face in an array of institutions–from labor markets and neighborhoods to educational and political systems–and considers the controversial questions of religion, race, identity, and intermarriage.
