Art in the Lives of Immigrant Communities in the United States is the first book to provide a comprehensive and lively analysis of the contributions of artists from America's newest immigrant communities--Africa, the Middle East, China, India, Southeast Asia, Central America, and Mexico.

Editorial Reviews

"Art in the Lives of Immigrant Communities in the United States provides a great deal of information about the way recent arrivals use art to adapt to the United States, to recognize themselves and share outlooks with others. The book exemplifies a compelling and  innovative approach that has considerable potential to improve the study of immigration and of cultural production. Accessible and well
written."
