At a time when immigration makes daily news headlines, the contributions of newcomers to our nation's economy cannot be ignored. Their talent and determination drove them to leave their homelands for a better life. But they didn't just make their lives better; some immigrant entrepreneurs have built empires, and reshaped our lives in the process. Focusing on those individuals who truly embody the American Dream, this volume touches on powerhouses like news mogul Arianna Huffington from Greece, computer innovator An Wang from China, steel magnate and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie from Scotland, and many more from across the globe.
