Product description

Review

There are, to be sure, varying degrees of success and different patterns of adjustment to America, but underlying them all is one powerful "master trend": surprisingly rapid Americanization. The authoritative synthesis of the present processes of assimilation is Richard Alba and Victor Nee's sociological masterpiece, "Remaking the American Mainstream". It shows that for nonblacks, assimilation is alive and well in America. It is not passive integration into a static, Anglo-Protestant mainstream (which was always a sociological fiction anyway), but an endlessly dynamic two-way cultural process.--Orlando Patterson"New York Times" (08/16/2009)

About the Author

RICHARD D. ALBA is Distinguished Professor of Sociology, State University of New York at Albany VICTOR NEE is Goldwin Smith Professor of Sociology, Cornell University.
