About the Author

Eric Fong is Professor and Chair of the Department of Sociology and Director of the Research Centre on Migration and Mobility at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Brent Berry is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Toronto.


"Fong and Berry examine immigrants in the United States and Canada to give us a sweeping overview of the diverse experiences of immigrants in cities, mapping the ways immigrants shape the contours of cities and cities define immigrant experiences. This book is a necessary resource to anyone interested in immigration and urban studies." Rhacel Salazar Parrenas, University of Southern California "Immigration and the City provides an illuminating and comprehensive portrait of how immigrants are being incorporated in cities in the United States and Canada, and how the immigrants and their children are, in turn, transforming the urban landscape in these two countries. The book offers a strong theoretical base from which to understand these processes and the social and economic forces that shape them." John Iceland, Penn State University
