Germans in the New World : Essays in the History of Immigration
This history of German immigrants in the United States and Brazil ranges from institutional and state history to broadly comparative studies on an intercontinental scale. Frederick C. Luebke offers both a valuable record of an individual odyssey within immigration history and a strong statement about the need for thoughtful reflections on the field, its approaches, and the assumptions underlying its interpretations.

"A fine introduction to the work of one of the most important historians of the German immigrant experience."-James E. Grummer, Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies "[These essays] constitute outstanding examples of the best kinds of ethnic and immigration history and serve as a measure of the contribution of Frederick C. Luebke to American historiography."-James S. Olson, Nebraska History "This volume documents the valuable contributions Luebke has made to a modern, pluralistic concept of immigration history... The expert will appreciate having these essays readily available, and the general reader may use the collection as an introduction into a fascinating field of historical exploration."-Juergen Heideking, Wisconsin Magazine of History "Historians of immigration will find inspiration and challenge in this excellent anthology." - Odd S. Lovoll, Western Historical Quarterly ADVANCE PRAISE "Luebke's essays on German immigration and group life, both in the United States and in Brazil, are important landmarks in the literature. Making them available in one volume is a real boon to historians of immigration." - Philip Gleason, author of The Conservative Reformers: German-American Catholics and the Social Order
