The book presents the views of experts on both sides of the Atlantic on the changes to the social structure of cities as a result of recent migration. The contributors consider the link between globalization 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 seek to assess the importance of national institutional structures.
