Abstract:

This book gives powerful testimony to the possibilities of success, even as it attests to the psychological costs of emigration and the struggles of immigration. The necessity of creating a new cultural or national identity is a recurring theme as the authors of articles - immigrants themselves and Americans sensitive to their families' immigrant experiences - address what has become an urgent question: How can we facilitate the immigrants' passage? The U.S. culture has been forged by the influence of immigrant cultures too numerous to mention; their representatives have made recognizable, significant contributions while struggling to create a viable place for themselves in their adopted land.
