Over the past four decades, the foreign-born population in the
United States has nearly tripled, from about 10 million in 1965 to
more than 30 million today. This wave of new Americans comes in
disproportionately large numbers from Latin America and Asia, a
pattern that is likely to continue in this century. In Transforming
Politics, Transforming America, editors Taeku Lee, S. Karthick
Ramakrishnan, and Ricardo Ramirez bring together the newest work of
prominent scholars in the field of immigrant political
incorporation to provide the first comprehensive look at the
political behavior of immigrants.Focusing on the period from 1965
to the year 2020, this volume tackles the fundamental yet
relatively neglected questions, What is the meaning of citizenship,
and what is its political relevance? How are immigrants changing
our notions of racial and ethnic categorization? How is immigration
transforming our understanding of mobilization, participation, and
political assimilation? With an emphasis on research that brings
innovative theory, quantitative methods, and systematic data to
bear on such questions, this volume presents a provocative
evidence-based examination of the consequences that these
demographic changes might have for the contemporary politics of the
United States as well as for the concerns, categories, and
conceptual frameworks we use to study race relations and ethnic
