Origins and Destinations: The Making of the Second Generation by Dr Renee Luthra, Dr Thomas Soehl, and Professor Roger Waldinger.

Using surveys of second generation immigrant adults in New York and Los Angeles, this book explains why second generation experiences differ across national origin groups and why immigrant offspring with the same national background often follow different trajectories.

Language Analysis for the Determination of Origin by Professor Peter Patrick and Professor Monika Schmid.

This book discusses current practices and the use of Language Analysis for the Determination of Origin (LADO). Readers will find chapters on how it is done, where it is used, how it is used, and learn about recent developments on the use of LADO reports in judicial practice, and current controversies in the field.
