Description

Coming to America will quickly take its place as the most authoritative, up-to-date, and absorbingly readable history of the waves of immigration to America from 1500 to the present.

In a narrative populated with real people, Roger Daniels takes the reader from the first Spanish, French, and English migrants to the later arrivals of Africans, Germans, and Irish, followed by Swedes, Poles, Italians, and Eastern European Jews in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, to the Latin American and Asian immigrants of our own era.

Daniels has built this history on the latest scholarship on the separate national and ethnic groups, and he emphasizes the comparative experience of each group. The author also discusses the migration of refugees, so important in this century, and treats immigration as a worldwide rather than merely an American phenomenon.
