Mass Migration to the United States: Classical and Contemporary Periods
Pyong Gap Min
Rowman Altamira, 2002 - History - 325 pages
During the mass migration period in the United States-between the years 1880 and 1930-an astounding 28 million people immigrated into the country. Min and his contributors offer a detailed evaluation of the differences and similarities between the immigrant groups from this earlier period and from the post-1965 contemporary period of immigration. In particular, they analyze trends in anti-immigrant attitudes and actions, changes in settlement patterns, entrepreneurship and business patterns, ethnic diversity, immigrant women's work, the intergenerational transmission of culture, and the naturalization process. The authors draw historical comparisons between the successive phases of immigration and the impact that they have had on evolving race relations in America. The book will be a valuable resource for instructors and researchers in the fields of immigration, race and ethnic studies, minorities and public policy, urban studies, ethnic history, demography, human geography, and sociology.
