Thoroughly revised and expanded, this is the definitive reference on American immigration from both historic and contemporary perspectives. It traces the scope and sweep of U.S. immigration from the earliest settlements to the present, providing a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to all aspects of this critically important subject.

Every major immigrant group and every era in U.S. history are fully documented and examined through detailed analysis of social, legal, political, economic, and demographic factors. Hot-topic issues and controversies - from Amnesty to the U.S.-Mexican Border - are covered in-depth. Archival and contemporary photographs and illustrations further illuminate the information provided. And dozens of charts and tables provide valuable statistics and comparative data, both historic and current. A special feature of this edition is the inclusion of more than 80 full-text primary documents from 1787 to 2013 - laws and treaties, referenda, Supreme Court cases, historical articles, and letters.

Review:

"The last section, 'Primary Documents,' is a real boon for researchers and includes everything from Colonial correspondence to a 2013 framework from the Senate on immigration reform. The cross-references at the end of each article are particularly helpful, as are the sections for further reading that appear after each article and as a whole at the end. ... A must for those libraries that want to update the original, and a useful purchase for any other collection that supports a curriculum in need of immigration materials." --Library Journal

"An attractive choice for collections in need of more current information on immigration. ... Recommended for academic libraries and most large and medium-sized public libraries for both students and the general public. Libraries owning the first edition will want to replace it with this revision." --Booklist

"An admirable work on a timely, important topic. Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through researchers/faculty." --Choice

"The entries are informed by recent scholarship and are written in a style that is appropriate for upper division high school students, undergraduates, and interested lay readers. Examining this encyclopedia makes it clear that successive waves of immigration have been essential to the development of the United States. The set also portrays immigration as a multifaceted phenomenon with complex ramifications that can be viewed from multiple perspectives. It is a compliment to the editors and their contributors that American Immigration... does so in a factual, scholarly fashion providing readers a valuable source for further study and understanding. This encyclopedia should find its way on to the shelves of college and high school libraries as well as many public libraries where there is interest." --Against the Grain

From Booklist:

The revised edition of this encyclopedia (originally published as Encyclopedia of American Immigration, 2001) examines the immigrant experience and how it continues to change America. The work has been completely updated and restructured, which makes it an attractive choice for collections in need of more current information on immigration.The set is made up of six major parts: “Causes, Processes, and Patterns”; “History”; “Society, Culture, and Politics”; “Nations of Origin and U.S. Destinations”; “International Perspectives”; and “Documents.” Two of these sections are of particular note: “History” chronologically examines each new wave of immigration to the U.S., from the origins of Native Americans through the post-9/11 era; and “Nations of Origin and U.S. Destinations” looks not only at where major groups of immigrants come from but where they end up and why. The final part, “Documents,” includes the texts of laws and treaties, executive orders, directives and statements, Supreme Court cases, debates, government reports and rulings, and such documents as historical articles and letters. These range from the Revolutionary War correspondence of George Washington to the implementation guidelines for President Obama’s DREAM Act executive order, from 2012.Individual signed entries contain a section of sources for further reading and cross-references. Throughout the set, there are charts, graphs, and black-and-white photographs. Each volume contains the table of contents, while volume 4 includes a glossary, a bibliography, and the index. This encyclopedia is recommended for academic libraries and most large and medium-sized public libraries for both students and the general public. Libraries owning the first edition will want to replace it with this revision. --Rebecca Vnuk
