9780882959283: And Still They Come: Immigrants and American Society 1920 to the 1990s

In this distinctive study of the impact of immigration and ethnicity on twentieth-century America, Barkan thoughtfully examines the changing composition of our immigrant populations, highlighting the ways in which certain facets of the struggle to adapt to American society have persisted from the 1920s until the 1990s. Going beyond the immigrant experience, Barkan considers the ways in which second- and third-generation Americans stress integration, even as they cling to important components of their ethnicity, not only adapting to American culture but shaping it. Featuring a moving photographic essay and coming alive with first-person accounts, And Still They Come is certain to provide important food for thought as Americans once more consider the narrowing gateways to the nation.

Review:

"Barkan offers a thoroughly researched and carefully balanced synthesis, emphasizing the diversity among individuals and groups before and after 1965 and offering carefully well-qualified generalizations. ... In short, And Still They Come is a valuable addition to the literature on American immigration since restriction, synthesizing a vast literature in a clear and original way." (International Migration Review, 1998)
