Edited by John Mollenkopf and Manuel Pastor
Unsettled Americans, a book coedited by John Mollenkopf and Manuel Pastor, examines immigrant integration at the metropolitan level. In the book, the work of John Mollenkopf, Manuel Pastor, and their colleagues "considers immigrant reception in seven different metro areas, and their analyses stress the differences in capacity and response between central cities, down-at-the-heels suburbs, and outer metropolitan areas, as well as across metro areas. A key feature of case studies in the book is their inclusion of not only traditional receiving areas (New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles) but also newer ones (Charlotte, Phoenix, San Jose, and California's "Inland Empire"). Another innovative aspect is that the authors link their work to the new literature on regional governance, contribute to emerging research on spatial variations within metropolitan areas, and highlight points of intersection with the longer-term processes of immigrant integration."
