Abrahamson explores metropolitan areas that have retained their distinctive ethnic, racial, and religious character in an era when American culture and landscape are increasingly homogenized. He revisits American urban dwellers in New York City, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Miami, and Detroit to find out why these communities continue to exist while others have not. In the new second edition, Abrahamson broadens the geographic and temporal scope to examine the formation of German communities in 19th century Brazil and American expatriate artists in post-WWI Paris. Urban Enclaves, Second Edition can be incorporated into a variety of courses in sociology, history, anthropology, and cultural geography.
