Unwelcome strangers : American identity and the turn against immigration by David M Reimers( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After decades of liberal policies that welcomed ever greater numbers of immigrants, America is seeing a surge in anti-immigration sentiment. In Unwelcome Strangers, David M. Reimers enters into the emotionally charged immigration debate, looking at all sides of the argument. Who are the nativists, and are any of their views legitimate? This balanced investigation traces the history of American attitudes toward immigration and offers a new perspective on the current crisis. The core of this book covers the heated arguments of the anti-immigration forces, from environmental groups that warn against the consequences of overpopulation, to concerns that immigrants take jobs away from Americans, to assimilationist fears that newcomers - especially from Latin America and Asia - threaten American culture. Reimers sees potential solutions in English language instruction for newcomers, greater accountability of sponsors, and government intervention to counterbalance the negative economic impact some immigrants have on poor communities
Natives and strangers : Blacks, Indians, and immigrants in America by Leonard Dinnerstein( Book )

8 editions published between 1979 and 1990 in English and held by 784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brought completely up to date to reflect recent scholarship and the new wave of immigration to the United States in the last decade, the second edition of this immensely popular book highlights a much-neglected dimension of the American past by giving a unique focus to the history of the nation's minority groups. Within the context of the country's economic development, the authors show how blacks, Indians, and immigrant minorities helped transform an agrarian society into the modern industrial-urban nation of the 1990s. Remarkable in the breadth of its coverage, this is the first survey that integrates the experiences of racial, religious, and ethnic minorities to present an overall sense of American history while illuminating major trends in the growth of the United States. The Second Edition includes entirely new material on Indian efforts to retain their cultural independence and their attempts to shape relations with the majority society. The book also new data on recent refugees and current immigration legislation. Written in the same clear, straightforward style that made the previous edition so popular, the Second Edition, which features many well-chosen illustrations, will be essential reading for students of American ethnic history
Other immigrants : the global origins of the American people by David M Reimers( Book )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: In Other immigrants, David M. Reimers offers the first comprehensive account of non-European immigration, chronicling the compelling and diverse stories of frequently overlooked Americans. Reimers traces the early history of Black, Hispanic, and Asian immigrants from the fifteenth century through World War II, when racial hostility led to the virtual exclusion of Asians and aggression towards Blacks and Hispanics. He also describes the modern state of immigration to the U.S., where Blacks, Hispanics, and Asians made up nearly thirty percent of the population at the turn of the twenty-first century

Now in its fifth edition, Natives and Strangers: A History of Ethnic Americans addresses these and many other vital questions. A comprehensive and accessible text, this unique volume explores various aspects of American minority group history. Examining the impact that America has had on minority peoples and cultures--and vice versa--it also provides insights into the different conditions, conflicts, and contradictions that members of American minority groups experienced. As in earlier editions, the fifth edition integrates the experiences of various racial, religious, and national minorities from around the globe--including American Indians, African Americans, and immigrants from Europe, Asia, Latin America, and other parts of the world--explaining how their histories intertwined with the emergence of modern America. Revised, updated, and condensed, the fifth edition of Natives and Strangers incorporates the latest research on such critical topics as American Indian affairs, western American development, and African American experiences. It also focuses on successive waves of different immigrants while exploring the evolution and complexities of American immigration policies. The authors conclude with reflections on where the nation stands today as an ethnically and racially diverse society. Featuring anecdotes, charts, graphs, tables, and an extensive updated bibliography, Natives and Strangers, Fifth Edition, is ideal for undergraduate courses that cover immigration, American social history, and American ethnic groups. -- Back cover

Nine clouds: A social history of New York City Nikkei, volume 1, 1900--1940 by Daniel H Inouye( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work further asserts that four distinct, ideology-based social movements formed and developed during this same time period -- America-Japan dualism, radicalism, Americanism, and ethnocentrism. Although there was some overlap with the community hierarchy, notably with regard to the ethnocentric and dualist movements, the four social movements operated largely independent of and isolated from each other and from the four tiers and the student sphere. The work concludes that ethnocentric efforts, particularly those of ethnic Japanese churches, were crucial in nurturing ethnic-based social and cultural capital among Nikkei residents of New York City. The churches were largely responsible for maintaining a collective Nikkei identity and a semblance of community solidarity amidst the status, class, and sociopolitical ideological divisions
A Jewish season: Ethnic-American culture at children's summer camp (1918--1941) by Nancy Aleen Mykoff( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between World Wars I and II, an institution called the summer camp became a part of American culture and life. This dissertation looks at the "culturally Jewish" camp for children within the context of the larger American summer camp movement. The term "culturally Jewish" denoted ethnicity, rather than religion. The camps catered to boys and girls ages seven to seventeen. This study focuses on summer camps that were established in the Northeast, within traveling distance of urban centers populated by America's largest Jewish communities. Camp Surprise Lake in New York State, is at the center of the analysis
