Summary

In an era of thriving anti-immigrant sentiments, this story of Monterey Park, California demonstrates how long-time residents and new immigrants deal with commonality as well as diversity.

Advertised in Asia as ''The Chinese Beverly Hills,'' this small city minutes east of downtown Los Angeles became by the late 1970s a regional springboard for a new type of Chinese immigration--suburban and middle class with a diversified and globally-oriented economy. Freed from the isolation of old Chinatowns, new immigrants now confronted resistance from more established Anglo, Asian American, and Latino neighbors, whose opposition took the form of inter-connected ''English Only'' and slow-growth movements.

In The Politics of Diversity, a multiethnic team of researchers employ ethnography, interviewing, and exit polls to capture the process of change as newcomers and established residents come to terms with the meaning of diversity and identity in their everyday lives. The result is an engaging grassroots account of immigration and change; the decline of the local old-boy Anglo network; the rise of women, minorities, and immigrants in the political scene; and a transformation of ethnic and American identities.
