The Human Genome DiversityProject tells us that between 15, 000and 30, 000 years ago people fromMongolia crossed Beringia to whatwe now call the Americas. U.S.Immigration and Migration chroniclesand interprets the phenomenalwaves of immigration to the UnitedStates from the earliest timesthrough the period from 1820 to1930, when the United Stateswas the destination of some 60%of the worlds immigrants -- up to the presentday, when restrictive policies have temporarily stanched the flowof immigrants.
Features include 150 black-and-white photographs, includingabout 10 maps; chronology; sidebars; words to know; researchand activity ideas; further reading; and a subject index. TheAlmanac volumes tell of the economic, religious and politicalforces that compelled people to seek a better life in a new land.These same forces later inspired the migration of manyAmericans to other areas in mass movements such as theWestward Expansion; the rural to urban migration; the GreatMigration of blacks in the early part of the 20th century; and themigration to the Sunbelt starting in the 1960s.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 7-10 - Almanac opens with an overview of immigration to and migration patterns within the U.S. and current theories about Pre-Columbian migrations to North America. Separate, well-written chronological chapters cover from the early arrival of the Spanish and English to the more recent immigration of Latino and Caribbean groups. Discussions examine the factors that pushed people from their homelands and pulled them to the U.S.; objective analysis about assimilation; and information about the contributions, current numbers, and locations of each subpopulation. The author also details voluntary and forced internal migrations within the U.S. These readable volumes offer much more background than Sandy Pobst's The Newest Americans (Greenwood, 2003). Biographies profiles 50 men and women who either immigrated to this country or influenced the debate on the treatment of immigrants. The balanced profiles are separately authored, so readability varies; while admiring of their subjects, the contributors also discuss their weaknesses. Sidebars provide additional information or quotes. In Primary Sources, the 17 excerpts begin with Lord Baltimore's 1649 Declaration of Religious Tolerance and end with Pat Buchanan's views on immigration policies. The letters, articles, government documents, Supreme Court rulings, and the reflections of authors such as Willa Cather and Mark Twain offer a wide variety of viewpoints. Each entry begins with a lengthy introduction that places the piece in historical context. While some of the sources can be difficult or dry reading they do illustrate how the document changed policies or influenced public opinion. Average-quality black-and-white illustrations appear throughout the set. Almanacis particularly strong, but all of these titles make solid report material. - Mary Mueller, Rolla Junior High School, MO
