Summary "Separate Destinations examines the political consequences of ethnic balkanization in the United States, James Gimpel shows that the distinct mobility patterns of natives and immigrants in the United States, coupled with record levels of immigration from impoverished third world nations, are balkanizing the American electorate."--BOOK JACKET. "Strong evidence suggests that spatially isolated immigrants are slow to naturalize and get involved in politics, leading to serious inequalities in participation and in the quality of representation across communities. Gimpel explores state-by-state variation in the extent of balkanization and shows how these patterns have different effects on politics."--BOOK JACKET. "Blending insights from a number of social science disciplines, including economics, demography, sociology, political science, and anthropology, this book will speak to the interests of a wide and diverse readership of scholars, students, and policymakers."--BOOK JACKET.
