Immigrants and Modern Racism : Reproducing Inequality
With rising numbers of immigrants of color in the United States, sheer demographic change has long promised - falsely, it now seems - to solve the ""race problem."" Directly connecting the issues of race relations and immigrant incorporation, Beth Merenstein sheds light on what the changing contours of the US' racial and ethnic makeup mean for our dearly held concept of ""equal opportunity for all.""This is a systematic study of the nature and impact of corruption in development aid programs, the conditions under which it is most likely to take hold, and the strategies that can enable aid organizations to limit the risk.
