Caribbean New York shows how the new immigration is reshaping American race relations and sheds much-needed light on factors that underlie some of the citys explosive racial confrontations.

Philip Kasinitz examines how two forces-racial solidarity and ethnic distinctiveness-have helped to shape the identity of New Yorks West Indian community. He compares new (post-1965) immigrants with West Indians who arrived earlier in the century, and looks in detail at the economic, political, and cultural rules that Afro-Caribbean immigrants have played in the city during each period.
