This book is a comprehensive study (515p.) of the different ethnic groups, that colonized America, and subsequent, immigration to America. The writing is a Sociological approach of the Subject of Immigration, It can answer, what ethnic groups, emigrated to America, and more important, what is their socioeconomic success, why the ethnic group, was successful and why not. This is a excellent book!
My only complaint is that the book is outdated (wrote in 1990). I tried to find an updated book on Immigration with a writing, on a sociological approach, I didn't find one.recent books, I find with approach on Legislation or racial matter.
I RECOMMEND this extraordinary book, to anybody interested on this SUBJECT, written on a Sociological approach, and a passion for reading books like me. .

I loved this book! I finally realized why our ancestors name changed when they came to America. In the late 1800's the US required all vessels to complete passengers lists and the pursers were completing them. The passengers were asked their names and the pursers would write down what they heard. This is a really interesting book and you will learn a great deal of what our ancestors went through in their journey to America.

I devoured this book in a few days. I was amazed at the detail for each immigration group coming from nation after nation. Well worth the read.

This is an extremely useful book for anyone who has an interest in the impact on immigrants upon U.S. history. This book gives capsule histories of most groups of immigrants to the United States. It also provides a very useful theoretical understanding of the reasons for immigration. Though it is particularly useful in its examination of the pre-colonial and colonial periods, it also (unlike many texts) includes a significant history of the pan-Caribbean slave trade, and the impact on the country as a whole of twenty percent of the population (at one time) being Africans or the children of Africans. I wish I had read it years ago, as I found my own family, immigrants from Krefeld, Germany, discussed here!
