Summary
  • The Other Americans reveals a starkly different America from the image of mainstream success or crippled dependency. The immigrants Millman profiles here - Indian motel owners, Mexican entrepreneurs, Chinese farmers, and Caribbean real estate developers - live in an America of their own making. Exploiting their determination, their family connections, the financial support and protection of mutual aid societies and saving circles, these immigrants are reclaiming lost
  • neighborhoods, neglected industries, and declining services. Attracted to the United States by the promise of a better life, they are bringing hope to many blighted areas of our country
