With more than a million immigrants from Latin America and the Caribbean, Miami, Florida, boasts the highest proportion of foreign-born residents of any US city. Charting the rise of Miami as a global city, Elizabeth Aranda, Sallie Hughes, and Elena Sabogal provide a paramic study of the changing dynamics of the immigration experience. The authors move easily between an analysis of global currents and personal narratives, examining the many factors that shape the decision to emigrate and the challenges faced in making a new home. Offering a wealth of new insights, their work demonstrates why Miami is such an exceptional laboratory for studying the social forces and local effects of globalisation on the ground.
