Educational institutions all over the world continue to attract the services of foreign-born scholars. In addition to the culture shock that immigrants experience in unfamiliar countries, these scholars often undergo "pedagogical shock." Through autobiographical accounts of foreign-born professors from Africa, Asia, Europe, and the US, this volume examines the experiences of foreign-born professors around the world to provide insight on the curricular, school-systemic, and sociological differences and challenges that are encountered, and how to help resolve them. It will help administrators, institutions, and immigration and comparative education scholars understand the cross-cultural challenges and coping strategies that define the private and professional lives of foreign-born professors across the globe.

The birth of Canada as a society and a nation has often been told from the narrow perspective of the "founding nations." These versions have left little room for the everyday experiences of a wide variety of individual immigrants who have had to adjust old-world lifestyles to the promising but harsh and drastically different environments of the city's urban neighbourhoods or the farmland's lonely expanses.

The book brings to light, in a social-science framework, the various aspects of the process of social integration and cultural adaptation of the new immigrants arriving in Israel in large numbers in the 1950s. The integration of the new immigrants was well studied in social science research during the relevant years, especially by Israeli sociologists, but Professor Cohen's study is of a different quality and nature. The study surveys various literary works written in Hebrew by Israeli authors, many of them immigrants themselves. Its main subject matter is the meeting, and often the confrontation, between newcomers and old-timers in Israel, between the cultures of the Jewish Diaspora, and that which evolved among the Jewish population in the country in prior decades. The study of literary works as research materials is a new trend in social sciences, and particularly in the discipline of geography. Professor Cohen's book is a pioneering study in this new direction.

"An important collection of essays that goes beyond the 'immigrant women only' approach to present new perspectives and raise new questions about gender and contemporary U.S. immigration."—Nancy Foner, author of From Ellis Island to JFK: New York's Two Great Waves of Immigration "At last a book that puts gender front and center in debates about the U.S. immigration experience and provides those new to these discussions with an invaluable introduction to the field. Particularly impressive is the substantive breadth of the contributions in this volume, which range from scholarship on the work, family, and political lives of immigrants from all parts of the globe to studies of ethnic, racial, and generational identity. A much needed and essential addition to the bookshelf of any immigration scholar. "—Peggy Levitt, author of The Transnational Villagers "This collection of wonderfully innovative and insightful essays by a distinguished group of social scientists demonstrates the definitive and mutually constitutive connections linking immigration and gender in the contemporary United States. The processes and practices of immigration play a central role in shaping a distinctly gendered distribution of opportunity and suffering, while gendered social structures, preferences, practices, and personal networks play a definitive role in shaping the contours of the immigrant experience and its impact on social, cultural, and economic life."—George Lipsitz, author of American Studies in a Moment of Danger "Hondagneu-Sotelo has assembled some of the foremost scholars in international migration to address the critical yet long-neglected issue of gender. The essays cover topics from employment to motherhood, relate home and host in transnational experiences, and incorporate differences in race, ethnicity, generation, and age in their analyses. A truly remarkable volume."—Lucie Cheng, co-author of Linking Our Lives: Chinese American Women of Los Angeles "Edited by a leading pioneer of immigration studies, this volume offers some of the latest and most brilliant thinking about what migrant men and women bring to the United States, leave behind and create anew. This is a must read for those interested in immigration, gender, and the many meanings of life."—Arlie Russell Hochschild, co-editor with Barbara Ehrenreich of Global Woman: Nannies, Maids, and Sex Workers in the New Economy

Although only the federal government is empowered to set immigration policy, the consequences of immigration are felt in states where they settle. This book focuses on New Jersey, whose immigrant population resembles the racial and ethnic composition of the U.S. population as a whole and whose immigration impacts have been relatively favorable. The authors draw lessons from the New Jersey experience about what states should expect and how they can help new immigrants manage the transition into the economic, social, and political mainstream. They examine wage and employment impacts, state and local fiscal impacts, public opinion toward immigrants, fertility, birth outcomes, education, political behaviors, home ownership, and undocumented immigration.
