Ueda (history, Tufts U.) interprets the changing patterns of immigration to the US since WWII, discussing themes such as shifts from restrictive to liberal immigration laws, naturalization policies, refugees, and ethnic relations. He charts patterns of social mobility among groups including West Indians and Latin Americans, and allows immigrants to speak for themselves on their experiences. Includes b&w maps and charts, a chronology of immigration policy, and a summary of immigration before WWII. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
