Preview not available

Abstract

This article describes the process and characteristics of Latino settlement in Chicago. It identifies elements of segregation and discrimination associated with Latino status. The analysis disagrees with Massey's claim that Latino settlement is proceeding along the lines of the ecological model. It claims that, though descriptively relevant, the model is not very useful for explaining the Latino experience, particularly prejudices and practices related to the status of Latinos as a dominated group in the U.S. The author claims that a combined historical, qualitative, and quantitative analysis reveals crucial qualifications that statistical analyses often miss.
