Becoming Brazuca: Brazilian Immigration to the United States (David Rockefeller Center Series on Latin American Studies)

Becoming Brazuca: Brazilian Immigration to the United States (David Rockefeller Center Series on Latin American Studies) Lowest new price: $89.88
Lowest used price: $14.59
List price: $24.95
Brand: Brand: David Rockefeller Ctr for Latin American Studies

Brazilians in the United States are a relatively new wave of immigrants from South America. In the past their vast country of origin was used to receiving immigrants, not sending them out. The shift is new, and these arrivals do not necessarily fit comfortably in the midst of the huge Spanish-speaking U.S. immigration. This volume offers a broad-ranging discussion of an understudied population and also brings insights into the core issues of immigration research: how immigration can complicate issues of social class, race, and ethnicity, how it intersects with the educational system, and how it fits into the assimilation paradigm.

Within the three broad categories that separate these 14 chapters, discussions by the 24 contributors illuminate the various facets of Brazilian immigration and put them in the broader context of life in the twenty-first century. Discussions of cultural icons like Carmen Miranda and Carnival, of Brazilian immigrant women, of the new generation, and of the economy of remittances are just a few examples of the wide range of topics covered in these pages.

The Accelerating Decline in America's High-Skilled Workforce: Implications for Immigration Policy (POLICY ANALYSES IN INTERNATIONAL ECONOMICS)

The Accelerating Decline in America's High-Skilled Workforce: Implications for Immigration Policy (POLICY ANALYSES IN INTERNATIONAL ECONOMICS) Lowest new price: $14.74
Lowest used price: $2.37
List price: $18.95
Author: Jacob Funk Kirkegaard
Brand: Brand: Peterson Institute

Kirkegaard explores the increasingly dysfunctional state of present US high-skilled immigration laws and recommends a coherent set of immediate reforms, which should aim to facilitate continuously high and increasingly economically necessary levels of high-skilled immigration to the United States. In recent decades American skill levels have stagnated and struggled to make the global top 10. As baby boomers retire, the United States risks losing these skills altogether. In response, the United States should address high-skilled immigration in its broader foreign economic policies in an attempt to remain a global leader in the face of accelerating global economic integration.

Citizenship across Borders: The Political Transnationalism of El Migrante Lowest new price: $11.42
Lowest used price: $3.00
List price: $24.50
Author: Michael Peter Smith
Brand: Brand: Cornell University Press

Michael Peter Smith and Matt Bakker spent five years carrying out ethnographic field research in multiple communities in the Mexican states of Zacatecas and Guanajuato and various cities in California, particularly metropolitan Los Angeles. Combining the information they gathered there with political-economic and institutional analysis, the five extended case studies in Citizenship across Borders offer a new way of looking at the emergent dynamics of transnational community development and electoral politics on both sides of the border.

Smith and Bakker highlight the continuing significance of territorial identifications and state policies―particularly those of the sending state―in cultivating and sustaining transnational connections and practices. In so doing, they contextualize and make sense of the complex interplay of identity and loyalty in the lives of transnational migrant activists. In contrast to high-profile warnings of the dangers to national cultures and political institutions brought about by long-distance nationalism and dual citizenship, Citizenship across Borders demonstrates that, far from undermining loyalty and diminishing engagement in U.S. political life, the practice of dual citizenship by Mexican migrants actually provides a sense of empowerment that fosters migrants' active civic engagement in American as well as Mexican politics.
