Journal of International Migration and Integration
This book contributes significantly to this debate not only for the U.S., but also for other receiving countries that have higher percentages of immigrants and less friction
review some issues in bilingual education in areas of backlash, such as California, and calmly promote the advantages of first-language retention and development until proficiency, accompanied or followed by sufficient English instruction to ensure full competence in both languages
In their interdisciplinary focus and wide knowledge of related fields, the authors are able to give a good account of the facilitating and hindering factors for immigrants from both individual and social perspectives
The book is written in an accessible style; rather friendly to higher-level undergraduates and well informed persons in general
The book is outstanding and will surely contribute to sane and possibly fruitful discussion of the issues both among Americans and those in similar countries that depend on relatively high rates of immigration.
