The immigrant paradox refers to the phenomenon of assimilated children of immigrants experiencing poorer developmental outcomes and lower educational achievement. In these essays from a spring 2009 conference held at Brown University, contributors look at psychological, sociological, demographic, educational, and economic aspects of this problem. The first part of the book presents demographic evidence for the immigrant paradox and traces the historical origins of the immigrant paradox for Mexican American students. The second part examines behavior and health outcomes across generations, looking at areas such as adolescent sexuality and delinquency. The third section considers family and community factors affecting academic outcomes. The book's audience includes advanced students, scholars, and professionals in immigration or ethnic studies, sociology, psychology, and education. Garcia Coll is affiliated with Brown University.
