Abstract

Presents results from a six-year longitudinal study of Cuban exiles. The original sample of 590 male Cubans aged 18 to 60 was interviewed in Miami in 1973; reinterviewed in 1976; and again in 1979. A longitudinal design allows systematic comparison of conditions and aspirations at arrival with situations in the US three and six years later. Findings reveal a series of unexpected trends which do not agree with the predictions of conventional assimilation theories or conflict-oriented perspectives. This discrepancy can be interpreted as due to the unique context in which the process of incorporation of these exiles has taken place. This context is that of an economic enclave created by earlier exile cohorts.-from Authors
