Bibliography

INTRODUCTION

The sources below are for the reader who is looking for more information on modern immigration. Not intended to be a comprehensive survey, the list includes several titles with excellent, detailed bibliographies.

No definitive treatment of current immigration exists but Stephan Thernstrom and Ann Orlov, eds., Harvard Encyclopedia of American Ethnic Groups ( Cambridge, Mass., 1980) is an invaluable, if uneven, guide. It includes essays on some 121 immigrant and ethnic groups, as well as several thematic pieces, bibliographies, and tables. Standard textbooks in American immigrant history include: Maldwyn Allen Jones's classic, but dated, American Immigration ( Chicago, 1960); Maxine Seller's To Seek America (Englewood, New Jersey, 1977), a fine interpretive work with exhaustive, critical bibliography; James Stuart Olson, The Ethnic Dimension in American History ( New York, 1979), a well-defined and broadly detailed survey; Leonard Dinnerstein, Roy L. Nichols, and David M. Reimers, Natives and Strangers ( New York, 1979), which attempts to weave the history of America's immigrants into the larger fabric of American history. Arthur Mann, The One and the Many: Reflections on the American Identity ( Chicago and London, 1979) casts a seasoned and perceptive eye on the tensions inherent in a pluralist society. Nathan Glazer and Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Beyond the Melting Pot: The Negroes, Puerto Ricans, Jews, Italians, and Irish of New York, 2nd ed. ( Cambridge, Mass., 1970) is an important, although dated, study. John Higham, Strangers in the Land: Patterns of American Nativism, 1860-1925 (New Brunswick, N.J., 1963) is a classic work on the tangled roots of America's restrictionist immigration policy.

Several general guides and bibliographies are available: John D. Buenker, Immigration and Ethnicity: A Guide to Information Sources ( Detroit, 1977); Wayne C. Miller , A Comprehensive Bibliography for the Study of American Minorities, 2 vols. ( New York, 1976); Research Institute on Immigration and Ethnic Studies, RecentImmigration to the United States: The Literature of the Social Sciences
