Riassunto: For many entrepreneurs, the American Dream remains only partially fulfilled. Unequal outcomes between the middle and lower classes, men and women, and Latino/as, whites, and blacks highlight continuing inequalities and constraints within American society. With a focus on a diverse group of Latino entrepreneurs, this book explores how class, gender, race, and ethnicity all shape Latino entrepreneurs' capacity to succeed in business in the United States.

Bringing intersectionality into conversation with theories of ethnic entrepreneurship, Zulema Valdez considers how various factors create, maintain, and transform the social and economic lives of Latino entrepreneurs. While certain group identities may impose unequal, if not discriminatory, starting positions, membership in these same social groups can provide opportunities to mobilize resources together. Valdez reveals how Latino entrepreneurs—as members of oppressed groups on the one hand, yet "rugged individualists" striving for the American Dream on the other—work to recreate their own positions within American society.

L'autore: Zulema Valdez is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Texas A&M University.

While certain group identities may impose unequal, if not discriminatory, starting positions, membership in these same social groups can provide opportunities to mobilize resources together. Valdez reveals how Latino entrepreneursÑas members of oppressed groups on the one hand, yet "rugged individualists" striving for the American Dream on the otherÑwork to recreate their own positions within American society. Zulema Valdez is Assistant Professor of Sociology at Texas A&M University. "In this richly textured and engaging book, Valdez presents us with a fresh and nuanced look at entrepreneurship and a new angle from which to gauge how ethnicity and race matter in shaping people's lives. The embedded market framework she has developed is cutting edge and has great potential to inform future work. Valdez succeeds in debunking myths about 'cultural explanations' in favor of a lens that incorporates structure and agency to demonstrate how differences in social positions lead to divergent life chances."ÑCecilia Menjivar, Professor of Sociology, Arizona State University "Drawing on a series of compelling interviews conducted in HoustonÑa major but under-studied area of immigrant settlementÑValdez addresses the importance of race, gender and class in the creation and functioning of immigrant businesses. Focusing on working class migrants, this creative study contributes much to our understanding Latino self-employment."ÑSteven J. Gold, Michigan State University (Key Words: Entrepreneurs, Sociology, Race, Class, Gender Shape, Zulema Valdez, Immigration). book. Codice libro della libreria 73110X1
