The only concise synthesis of the major immigration policies and population flows that have transformed recent America
DescriptionThe World Comes to America provides an overview of the groups of immigrants who arrived in the United States after World War II ended in 1945. Authors Leonard Dinnerstein and David M. Reimers examine the groups who came to America, explaining their reasons for immigrating, noting where they settled, and discussing how they fared once they arrived. The authors cover conflicting American attitudes towards welcoming strangers and the different policies that Congress pursued to aid--or to delay--the entry of foreigners to America.
