President John F. Kennedy's final book, A Nation of Immigrants, is a most worthy and relevant contribution to the contemporary debate on immigration reform.
"This book should be read by every politician involved in the immigration debate, and by every citizen interested in the current immigration debate..." (OnTheIssues.org)
Throughout his presidency, John F. Kennedy was passionate about the issue of immigration reform. He believed that America is a nation of people who value both tradition and the exploration of new frontiers, people who deserve the freedom to build better lives for themselves in their adopted homeland. This modern edition of his posthumously published, timeless work--with an introduction by Senator Edward M. Kennedy and a foreword by Abraham H. Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League--offers the late president's inspiring suggestions for immigration policy and presents a chronology of the main events in the history of immigration in America.
As debates on immigration continue to engulf the nation, this tribute to the importance of immigrants to our nation's prominence and success is as timely as ever.
John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) was president of the United States from 1961 to 1963. At forty-three, he was the youngest man ever elected to the Oval Office and the first Roman Catholic president.
