About The Book
Award-winning journalist Joel Millman brings a provocative point of view and original reporting to the growing immigration debate, seeing newly arrived Americans as a solution to, rather than the cause of, our economic ills. Going behind the political slogans and angry posturing, banishing the images of mainstream success and crippled dependency, The Other Americans describes the often misunderstood everyday economic lives of immigrants.The people Millman profiles here — Indian motel owners, Mexican entrepreneurs, Chinese farmers, and Caribbean real estate owners — live in an America of their own making. Exploiting their determination, their family connections, the financial support and protection of mutual aid societies and savings circles, these immigrants have reclaimed America’s lost neighborhoods, neglected industries, and declining services. Attracted to the United States by the promise of a better life, they are bringing hope to the blighted areas of America.
Must reading for anyone with an opinion on the future of immigration in this country, The Other Americans is the first book to provide hard facts and evidence from real lives.
