Overview

“Diversity is part of Miami’s great strength, richness, and excitement. Miami Now! Helps us chart the past so we can embrace the future.”—Senator Bob Graham

Miami Now fills a long-felt need for observers of the social changes in Miami over the last thirty-three years. In one volume, the reader has scholarly analysis from the perspectives of the newcomer and the native-born. It is especially valuable for its presentation on the role of the newcomer in organized labor, something that is not well known.”—Monsignor Bryan O. Walsh, Archdiocese of Miami

From the Foreword:

“Here is a book packed with information of interest to scholars and the lay public alike. Given the significance of Miami as a harbinger of America’s urban future, it was long overdue.”—Alejandro Portes, The Johns Hopkins University
