Title: The Immigrant enclave: Theory and empirical examples
Author: Portes, Alejandro; Manning, Robert
Abstract: The purpose of this chapter is to review existing theories about the process of immigrant adaptation to a new society and to recapitulate the empirical findings that have led to an emerging perspective on the topic. This emerging view revolves around the concepts of different modes of structural incorporation and of the immigrant enclave as one of them. These concepts are set in explicit opposition to two previous viewpoints on the adaptation process, generally identified as assimilation theory and the segmented labor markets approach.
Description: This chapter has been taken from the book, "Social Stratification: Class, Race, and Gender in Sociological Perspective."
