Overview

Long the majority of the U.S. population, European Americans originally arrived on the North American continent from many disparate places and having myriad linguistic and cultural backgrounds. Beginning with the English Puritans, successive waves of immigrants have included Europeans from Ireland, Scotland, Italy, Germany, France, Sweden, and the Netherlands hoping to escape famine, revolution, and political or religious oppression, as well as those simply interested in beginning a new life. By the 21st century, these communities have become a "melting pot," even as they maintain many of their traditional customs.

The Multicultural America series offers students and general readers a fascinating glimpse into the history of different ethnic groups in the United States. The focus of the set is on the social history, customs, and traditions of immigrants across American history. Each volume examines a specific ethnic group and presents a remarkable array of valuable information, covering everything from food, dress, entertainment, work, education, popular pastimes, political activity, and contributions and conflicts in American society. In an engaging, informative manner, each volume describes what members of a group found when they first arrived in the United States up to their current status in American society.
