The second edition of this compelling text contains updated notes and bibliography and a new chapter, called immigration in an age of globalization, which looks particularly at new immigration law and policy in the US in the 1990s. The text explores economic and social reasons for immigration, policy on immigration, and reaction to it from the colonial period through the present. Many b&w plates are included.

Perhaps the most authoritative and readable single-volume history of immigration yet written. Nationality by nationality, Daniels traces the migration of refugees to this country as far back as the year 1500.
