Historians commonly point to the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act as the inception of a new chapter in the story of American immigration. Whereas the previous system (itself based on the Immigration Act of 1924) limited newcomers and gave priority to applicants from northwestern Europe, the 1965 measure eliminated discriminatory national quotas and took into account family reunification, education, jobs, and professional training. As a result, the national and ethnic profile of immigrants to the U.S. changed dramatically, including large numbers of arrivals from the Caribbean, Central America, South America, South Asia, East Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and the former Soviet Union. This wide-ranging volume brings together scholars from various disciplines to probe this subject, considering what is genuinely new about post-1965 immigration (both documented and undocumented) and what continuities have persisted. The result is a rich and nuanced portrait of American society in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, one that has been defined not simply by the fortunes of postwar liberalism, but also by the fall of the Soviet Union and the War on Terrorism.

Review:

"A rich, insightful, cross-disciplinary examination of one of the most significant periods in U.S. immigration history - our own. The collection offers a cohesive yet remarkably varied treatment of the challenges faced and the lives carved out by 'new' immigrants, and of the mark that recent immigration has made, from Boston to Atlanta to Southern California. A truly excellent anthology." - Matthew Frye Jacobson, William Robertson Coe Professor of American Studies & History and Professor of African American Studies, Yale University, USA

"This volume pivots on the juxtaposition of recent and earlier eras of mass immigration, yielding useful comparisons between policies, groups, and collective identity that will greatly interest scholars who explore the historical dimensions of international migration in the United States." - Reed Ueda, Professor of History, Tufts University, USA
