Abstract

Taking a multilevel approach and accounting for the complex interaction between sending and host countries, Origins and Destinations: The Making of the Second Generation brings new insights to the divergent outcomes of immigrant children in the US. Using the same data of several award winning books, it directly challenges some of the predictions of assimilation theories and the hyperselectivity model.
