Contents Mapping the issues at the heart of change in North Carolina and the Southeast -- Preserving our heritage, promoting our future : what's at stake in Alamance County and beyond -- Immigration in North Carolina's past : learning from history -- Bienvenidos a Norte Carolina : the economic, work, and social realities of migration from both sides of the border -- Burying the knife, building communities : how migrants make new lives -- Defying the odds : Latino youth, the agents of change
Note Exploring the larger social forces behind demographic shifts, Gill shows both how North Carolina communities are facing the challenges and opportunities presented by these changes and how migrants experience the economic and social realities of their new lives. Gill makes connections between hometowns and the increasing globalization of people, money, technology, and culture by revealing the many diverse North Carolina residents who are highly visible yet, as she shows, invisible at the same time
