For years people from all parts of the world have gravitated to the city of Amsterdam and, like elsewhere, their fate has been shaped by the economic, sociopolitical, and cultural environments of their new homes. But the essays in Ethnic Amsterdam argue that this exchange occurs both ways: while immigrants are changed by the customs, opportunities, and constraints of their new host country, they are at the same time leaving their ineradicable mark on the cities in which they settle. This fascinating volume explores how immigrants—in bringing with them religion, sports, language, food, and other aspects of their native countries—have transformed Amsterdam into a cosmopolitan city.
