Abstract

The past four decades have witnessed a massive West Indian migration to New York. The influx—the largest emigration flow in West Indian history—has had enormous consequences for the lives of individual migrants as well as for the societies they have left behind and the city they have entered. This collection of original essays explores the effects of West Indian migration, puts forward analytic frameworks to aid in understanding it, and points to areas for further research.
