Erika Lee and Judy Yung have written the definitive book on Angel Island. With this comprehensive history, Angel Island may now stand alongside Ellis Island as the other iconic gateway to America.

Erika Lee and Judy Yung have written the definitive book on Angel Island. Lee and Yung have used the personal stories of immigrants to make time and place come alive, reminding us that history is something that happens to real people and their families. -Lisa See, author of On Gold Mountain: The One-Hundred-Year Odyssey of a Chinese-American Family.

From 1910 to 1940, the Angel Island immigration station in San Francisco served as the processing and detention center for over one million people from around the world. The majority of newcomers came from China and Japan, but there were also immigrants from India, the Philippines, Korea, Russia, Mexico, and over seventy other countries. The full history of these immigrants and their experiences on Angel Island is told for the first time in this landmark book, published to commemorate the immigration station's 100th anniversary.

In this landmark book, historians Erika Lee and Judy Yung (both descendants of immigrants detained on the island) provide the first comprehensive history of the Angel Island Immigration Station.

Together, their stories offer a more complete and complicated history of immigration to America than we have ever known.

In this landmark book, historians Erika Lee and Judy Yung (both descendants of immigrants detained on the island) provide the first comprehensive history of the Angel Island Immigration Station. Their experiences on Angel Island reveal how America's discriminatory immigration policies changed the lives of immigrants and transformed the nation. A place of heartrending history and breathtaking beauty, the Angel Island Immigration Station is a National Historic Landmark, and like Ellis Island, it is recognized as one of the most important sites where America's immigration history was made.

From 1910 to 1940, the Angel Island immigration station in San Francisco served as the processing and detention center for over one million people from around the world. The majority of newcomers came from China and Japan, but there were also immigrants from India, the Philippines, Korea, Russia, Mexico, and over seventy other countries. The full history of these immigrants and their experiences on Angel Island is told for the first time in this landmark book, published to commemorate the immigration station's 100th anniversary. Based on extensive new research and oral histories, Angel Island: Immigrant Gateway to America examines the great diversity of immigration through Angel Island: Chinese "paper sons," Japanese picture brides, Korean refugee students, South Asian political activists, Russian and Jewish refugees, Mexican families, Filipino workers, and many others. Together, their stories offer a more complete and complicated history of immigration to America than we have ever known.Like its counterpart on Ellis Island, the immigration station on Angel Island was one of the country's main ports of entry for immigrants in the early twentieth century. But while Ellis Island was mainly a processing center for European immigrants, Angel Island was designed to detain and exclude immigrants from Asia. The immigrant experience on Angel Island-more than any other site-reveals how U.S. immigration policies and their hierarchical treatment of immigrants according to race, ethnicity, class, nationality, and gender played out in daily practices and decisions at the nation's borders with real consequences on immigrant lives and on the country itself. Angel Island: Immigrant Gateway to America is officially sponsored by the Angel Island Immigration Station.

After reading book about Ellis Island the wife decided she needed to know about immigration from the other side of the country, she's still reading this but has told me several times it's interesting, about a subject she knew little about.

This book, bought as part of a master's program through the Gilder Lehrman Institute of United States History, has been a joy to read! It is a well-written and insightful treatise on the treatment of various immigrant groups that went through Angel Island to start a new life in America. It is an invaluable resource if you are interested in immigration, and it also provides a great deal of background about why certain groups decided to leave their homelands and journey to America. A must read for history buffs!

Good read on Angel Island.

Given prior information, I purchased this book with expectation of more coverage of given immigrant groups and was disappointed. It is good as historical record.

The subject is fascinating. The writing was so bad I couldn't finish the book. Serious editing is required. If you want to learn about immigration to our western shore, find something by someone who can write.
This book seems hackish. Granted it hits all the emotional chords, but lacks any real substance and personality. Reads almost like a translation. I have met one of the authors and she met my expectation for a title like this- hollow and data driven without any real understanding of the historical method. Real historians don't just dig into archives. Instead we create a compelling narrative. I have heard she assigns this book to her students as well. That to me, and most other historians equates to a money making tactic and nothing else. It's a shame too because Judy and Erika clearly spent plenty of time in the library digging. Sadly that didn't translate into anything worth a citation or mention. Next time Judy and Erika might be served by not just being data driven but consider real people are interested in the topic as well. I can promise it will make them more prolific and make them actually deserving of their publisher. At this point it seems like this book was only put to press because nothing else of even remote value covered this topic. Besting that is trivial. One star for missing the whole point of a mass market book. 4 Stars for investigating. But data is worthless if it is presented like this.
