Review:

Bohon and Conley have written an important book that clearlyarticulates the ubiquitous impact of immigration on the U.S.economy, social institutions, and the country's demographic future.This book is a welcome state-of-the-field scientific literatureoverview for classroom instruction and scholarly advancement.
Gordon De Jong, Penn State University

In an age of large-scale U.S. immigration often enveloped inbombastic rhetoric, this book is a breath of fresh air. Bohon andConleys straightforward analysis clearly shows howimmigration intersects with demography, a field that uses empiricaldata to understand how immigrants fare in U.S. society. This is amust-read for everyone interested in understanding contemporarydebates about U.S. immigration.
Katharine M. Donato, Vanderbilt University

"The authors of this timely book provide an outstanding review of both the theoretical and empirical literature concerning immigration's effect on education, health, and the environment. The chapter on assimilation and integration is particularly noteworthy The text is jargon-free and accessible to non-demographers."
