Economic Mobility and Cultural Assimilation Among Children of ImmigrantseBook - 2011
Segmented assimilation theory states that immigrants follow multiple paths of assimilation into different segments of American society. Faulkner tests the theory using data on children of immigrants and later generation youths and analyzes how context of reception, adaptation obstacles, and protective factors are associated with paths of assimilation. She take into account five factors that segmented assimilation theory has not fully considered (1) assimilation?s intergenerational nature, (2) life course stage, (3) assimilation starting points, (4) gender, and (5) later generation comparisons.
