Strangers No More: Richard Alba and Nancy Foner publish new book

Richard Alba (Distinguished Professor of Sociology at the Graduate Center of CUNY) and Nancy Foner (Distinguished Professor of Sociology at Hunter College and the Graduate Center of CUNY) have published their new book called Strangers No More: Immigration and the Challenges of Integration in North America and Western Europe


Strangers No More is the first book to compare immigrant integration in six 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 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.
