21. Victor Nee, Sociology, and Richard Alba

Remaking the American Mainstream: Assimilation and Contemporary Immigration (Harvard University Press, 2003). Nee and Alba (SUNY Albany) present the first systemic look at assimilation in the U.S. since the 1960s. They show that assimilation continues to shape the immigrant experience, even though the geography of immigration has shifted from Europe to Asia, Africa, and Latin America. They explore language, socioeconomic attainment, residential patterns, and intermarriage, and predict that as nonwhites and Hispanics are increasingly incorporated into the mainstream of American society, the boundaries will blur among the major racially defined populations.
