Description


A “fascinating” history of immigration in America with extensive photos and illustrations (Kirkus Reviews).

American attitudes toward immigrants are paradoxical. On the one hand, we see our country as a haven for the poor and oppressed; anyone, no matter his or her background, can find freedom here and achieve the “American Dream.” On the other hand, depending on prevailing economic conditions, fluctuating feelings about race and ethnicity, and fear of foreign political and labor agitation, we set boundaries and restrictions on who may come to this country and whether they may stay as citizens.

This fact-filled, illustrated book explores the way government policy and popular responses to immigrant groups evolved throughout U.S. history, particularly between 1800 and 1965—and concludes with a summary of events up to contemporary times, as immigration again becomes a hot-button issue.

“[An] exceptional work.” —School Library Journal (starred review)
