First published by the Indiana Historical Society in 1996, Peopling Indiana contains more than 50 ethnic groups. This volume is the capstone of an ethnic history project launched by the Indiana Historical Society in 1989. The lavishly illustrated book contains thirty-one chapters touching on many of the past and present ethnicities that populated the Hoosier State, followed by a thorough index. The book also includes historic photographs, maps, tables and charts, and detailed footnotes. An introductory essay by John Bodnar, professor of history and co-director of the Center for Study of Memory and History at Indiana University, places the ethnic history of Indiana within the context of ethnic history in America. An appendix by George Rose, dean and director, Ohio State University, Marion, Ohio, places Hoosier ethnicity within the ethnicity of the states of the Old Northwest. Reprinted in partnership with the Indiana Humanities Council with the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Peopling Indiana: The Ethnic Experience includes essays by academics, professionals from a variety of fields and lay people on such diverse Hoosier ethnic groups as African Americans, Canadians, Chinese, English/Welsh, French, Germans, Greeks, Hispanics, Irish, Italians, Jews, Native Americans, Poles, Scandinavians, Scots, Slovaks, Southeast Asians, South Slavs, Swiss, and others. Between 1820 and 1975, approximately 47 million people came to the United States as immigrants. In 1850, the five largest groups of foreign born within Indiana came from Germany, Ireland, England, Canada and France. Today, the Mexican and Asian-born peoples rival the Germans for being the largest ethnic group in the state. Peopling Indiana is the comprehensive history and analysis of these migration waves and their cultural, social, economic, and political impact on Indiana. --Midwest Book Review
Curt Witcher, department manager for the Genealogy Center for the Allen County Public Library, has hailed the book as a model for capturingany state's cultural heritage. --Curt Witcher
