Description

Immigration has always caused immense public concern, especially when the perception is that immigrants are not assimilating into society they way they should, or perhaps the way they once did. But is this truly a modern phenomenon? In From Immigrants to Americans, Jacob Vigdor offers a direct comparison of the experiences of immigrants in the United States from the mid-19th century to the present day. His conclusions are both unexpected and fascinating. This is an important book for anyone interested in immigration, either the history or the modern implications, or who want to understand why today's immigrants seem so different from previous generations of immigrants and how much they are the same.
