The United States is once again in the midst of a peak period of immigration. By 2005, more than 35 million legal and illegal migrants were present in the United States. At different rates and with differing degrees of difficulty, a great many will be incorporated into American society and culture.

Leading immigration experts in history, sociology, anthropology, economics, and political science here offer multiethnic and multidisciplinary perspectives on the challenges confronting immigrants adapting to a new society. How will these recent arrivals become Americans? Does the journey to the U.S. demand abandoning the past? How is the United States changing even as it requires change from those who come here?

Broad thematic essays are coupled with case studies and concluding essays analyzing contemporary issues facing Muslim newcomers in the wake of 9/11. Together, they offer a vibrant portrait of America&#’s new populations today.

Contributors: Anny Bakalian, Elliott Barkan, Mehdi Bozorgmehr, Caroline Brettell, Barry R. Chiswick, Hasia Diner, Roland L. Guyotte, Gary Gerstle, David W. Haines, Alan M. Kraut, Xiyuan Li, Timothy J. Meagher, Paul Miller, Barbara M. Posadas, Paul Spickard, Roger Waldinger, Karen A. Woodrow-Lafield, and Min Zhou.

About the Author:

Elliott Barkan is Emeritus Professor of History and Ethnic Studies at California State University, San Bernardino. He is the author or editor of numerous books including, most recently, From All Points: America’s Immigrant West, 1870s-1952.

Review:

“The complex, ambiguous connections among the immigration past and present are given masterful treatment in From Arrival to Incorporation, which presents a series of case studies that are essential reading for anyone who seeks guidance in the interpretation of present-day immigration and its consequences for American society. This volume gives multidimensional depth to the contemporary landscape of diversity.”

-Richard Alba,co-author of Remaking the American Mainstream



“It offers a mixture of theory, historical methods, quantitative approaches, ethnographies, and commentaries that allow readers to compare articles in useful ways and suggests their utility in multiple settings.”
-Journal of World History



“Given recent anti-immigrant sentiments and evolving policies regarding today’s immigrants, From Arrival to Incorporation is timely in its emphasis on the need to move beyond a binary vision of immigrant experiences.”
-PsycCRITIQUES
