In the United States immigration is both history and destiny. It is the driving force behind a most significant social transformation taking place in American society at the end of our millennium. Arguably few other social phenomena are likely to impact the future character of American culture and society as much as the ongoing wave of “new immigration.”

Who are the new immigrants? What do they want? How are they changing American society? This cross-disciplinary book brings together twelve essays by the leading scholars of the most significant aspect of the new immigration: Mexican immigration to the United States. Crossings theorizes aspects of recent Mexican immigration that are new and that demarcate this wave of immigration from earlier experiences in this century.
