Menjívar also examines how class, gender, and age affect immigrants' access to social networks and scarce community resources. The immigrants' voices are stirring and distinctive: they describe the dangers they face both during the journey and once they arrive, and bring to life the disappointments and joys that they experience in their daily struggle to survive in their adopted community.

This book is really, very good. I picked it because of the colorful cover, and then I was engrossed reading it. There is a chapter with a lot of theory, but if you're not an expert you can skip it and still get a lot. It made me cry three times! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!Was this review helpful?

This is a great book. The author vividly describes the lives of poor immigrants and offers a sophisticated explanation for why their social networks change, weaken or are transformed. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone interested in the lives of immigrants or poor people in general!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
