Product Overview

For more than two decades, Minnesota has seen a new wave of immigration from disparate areas of the world, including Eastern Europe, Mexico, Central and Latin America, Africa, and Southeast Asia. Gregg Aamot, who has been covering immigration in Minnesota since the early 1990s, shares the challenges and realities immigrants and refugees face while assimilating to the Upper Midwest. From a front-row seat in the homes, workplaces, and meeting halls of these newcomers, Aamot provides an informative and intimate vew of what life is really like for groups that are striving to adapt to a different culture. We are also reminded of how the last major wave of immigrants--who were mostly Europeans--faced similar challenges, helping us to better understand conditions in Minnesota today. The New Minnesotans is essential reading for anyone interested in the changing cultural and economic landscape in Minnesota, or in other states where the immigran population is on the rise.
