This chapter examines the characteristics of an ethnoburb in order to provide a theoretical explanation of the process of ethnoburb formation as well as a general portrait of the ethnoburb population. Focusing on the Chinese ethnoburb in Los Angeles, it considers where the area's Chinese immigrants originated and whether their arrivals were connected to major geopolitical developments in their countries of origin or to important immigration policy shifts in the United States. It also discusses the differences between an ethnoburb and a traditional ethnic enclave by comparing the San Gabrial Valley ethnoburb with Chinatown in downtown Los Angeles. Finally, it explores the socioeconomic status of Chinese immigrants in the San Gabrial Valley ethnoburb within the context of globalization, along with the internal stratification in the ethnoburb.

Keywords:   globalization, Chinese ethnoburb, Los Angeles, Chinese immigrants, immigration policy, ethnic enclave, San Gabrial Valley, Chinatown, socioeconomic status, internal stratification
