Review:

"This book is long overdue. . . . All of the contributors―many of whom are immigrants themselves―do a splendid job of communicating what the immigrant experience is like personally and how host-country citizens can improve the lives of these children over time. A genuinely interesting and easy-to-read book. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students, researchers, and professionals." - Choice
