Review quote

"The papers are carefully chosen, of high individual quality, and integrated more than most collections of essays by scholars' responses to each other and the editor's analytical overview....This book is valuable becase it seeks to avoid an ethnocentric or parochial perspective and to place American Immigration in a wider context."--Explorations in Sights and Sounds"The interdisciplinary nature of this work is wonderful. Chapter notes are valuable aids for both teacher and student."--S. Carol Berg, College of St. Benedict"Well selected papers on a much-ignored issue. Brings light to the minds of students and teachers."--Xiaoxin Wu, University of San Francisco"Eleven essays by leading historians and social scientists of immigration that present new research in this area....Especially useful for scholars of American history since they provide a broader context in which to teach about the American imimigration experience."--Teaching History"An excellent anthology--the best I know of in bringing together some very insightful and important articles."--Scott Sernau, Indiana University, South Bend"Very useful in understanding and teaching American immigration history."--Haiming Liu, University of California, Irviner"Challenges current assumptions about the immigration experience. The work provides a breadth of fresh air in ethnic history."--Gregory R. Campbell, University of Montana"The first major synthesis of recent historical and sociological trends in the study of American immigration....A new paradigm for scholars interested in immigration and ethnicity, one that moves well beyond the simplistic dichotomies of much previous work."--Robert S. Lambert, Journal of American History"The title of this book provides only hints of the richness that lies within...the analytical and innovative contributions of distinguished and authoritative scholars, the skillful blending of disciplines, and the clear articulations and extensions of structural approaches to the study of international migration and migrants....This collection has reaffirmed the importance of the past while advancing our approaches to the study of immigration."--Contemporary Sociology"A series of first-rate articles which approach the matter of immigration from a number of perspectives, all of which are nicely integrated. These essays reflect the most up-to-date scholarship in the field, and provide a global dimension to a topic which traditionally was considered somewhat in a vacuum. All in all, this book should find wide use and application."--Gerald Michael Schnabel, Bemidji State University "The papers are carefully chosen, of high individual quality, and integrated more than most collections of essays by scholars' responses to each other and the editor's analytical overview....This book is valuable becase it seeks to avoid an ethnocentric or parochial perspective and to place American Immigration in a wider context."--Explorations in Sights and Sounds"The interdisciplinary nature of this work is wonderful.
