Leading scholars on both sides of the Atlantic analyze the changes to the social structure of cities as a result of recent migration. The contributors consider the link between globalizing cities and existing zones of social exclusion, employment prospects for all residents and the likelihood of social mobility for recent arrivals. A particular feature of the book is the comparative focus of the chapters that, for the first time, seek to assess the importance of national institutional structures.
