Contents: This book "tries to present an up-to-date account of the history of immigration to the United States and of the assimilation of foreign- born and foreign-stock Americans into the general society. Its approach is inclusive. The book examines assimilation along with immigration, inasmuch as they are two sides of a single phenomenon --
the creation of the American people. It discusses Indians and Africans, as well as Europeans and Asians, because their stories are related and because intergroup differences help define the nation's alternatives for dealing with alien peoples. The book begins with the colonial period out of recognition that the assumptions governing intergroup relations in the United States were established then and concludes with an effort to make sense of what has happened to America's ethnic groups since the end of the era of mass migration. The book balances respect for the specific and unique with the desire to organize information in instructive categories and to analyze data in a theoretical framework. It shows the variety of causes that drove people from their homelands, the range of conditions that they met in the New World, and the diversity of reactions to the problems associated with the commingling of peoples" --
Prologue.
Responsibility: Thomas J. Archdeacon.
