It is useful to distinguish three, obviously interconnected, but nonetheless distinct, aspects of globalization:the economic, political, and cultural. Economictransnationalism is generally seen in relationshipto the emergence of global corporations,centered in the metropole, but active in the periphery in their ceaseless quest for cheap labor. ” In this regard, workingclass labor migrants can be seen, in effect, as the counterpart to transnational capitalists (Portes et al. 1999: 227). But economic transnationalism does not only involve the border-crossing strategies of a global working class.
However, reducing levels of prejudice and discrimination are not ends in themselves, but rather should be seen as prerequisites to civic incorporation. Whether or not these prerequisites are met depends on the outcome of political struggles that are shaped by differentials in power. Note that by placing the emphasis on civic assimilation, and not on Gordon’s “keystone” - structural assimilation - we can begin to envision something that earlier assimilationist theorists, particularly those under the spell of the evolutionary modernization theory, could not: namely, that civic incorporation might provide a sufficient basis for the forging of a common culture and thus societal cohesion, while assuming, permitting, and perhaps even encouraging ethnic diversity to persist over the long haul.
Contemporary theorists of assimilation contend that it is important to attempt to account for the range of types of people who fall under the rubric of “the migrant” (Portes & Rumbaut 2001). If assimilation theory has received a new lease on life, does this mean that history is likely to repeat itself? In other words, can we expect the newest immigrants and their offspring to assimilate in a parallel fashion to that of the wave of immigrants that arrived in the half century between 1880 and 19301 Gans (1992b) has raised these questions in a speculative essay on the possible futures for the post-1 96 5 wave of immigrants that entered the country during its transition from an industrial to a postindustrial economy.
