Designed for and written to be understood by high school students and college undergraduates, Encyclopedia of American Immigration offers a clear and innovative approach to immigration history that can also be used by advanced students and scholars. The goal of the set is to address all questions about immigration that students might reasonably be expected to ask: Where immigrants have come from and why; how they have adapted to their new homeland; how they have contributed to American culture and society; how government policies toward them have changed; practical issues of legal and social integration; and how American immigration history has fit into worldwide migration patterns. Volume 3 also has an annotated general bibliography, a glossary of immigration terms, a filmography, and a lengthy time line. In addition, users will find a categorized list of entries, an index of personages and a general subject index.
