Reviews

"A rich, insightful, cross-disciplinary examination of one of the most significant periods in U.S. immigration history - our own. The collection offers a cohesive yet remarkably varied treatment of the challenges faced and the lives carved out by 'new' immigrants, and of the mark that recent immigration has made, from Boston to Atlanta to Southern California. A truly excellent anthology." - Matthew Frye Jacobson, William Robertson Coe Professor of American Studies & History and Professor of African American Studies, Yale University, USA

"This volume pivots on the juxtaposition of recent and earlier eras of mass immigration, yielding useful comparisons between policies, groups, and collective identity that will greatly interest scholars who explore the historical dimensions of international migration in the United States." - Reed Ueda, Professor of History, Tufts University, USA
