The Immigrant Left in the United Statesby Paul Buhle
This book investigates the role immigrant radicals have played in U.S. society from the mid-nineteenth century to the present.
"I like very much that this book covers immigrant life and politics over the long run of U.S. history rather than focusing on either the past or the present. Essays on immigrant workers inevitably shed light on nationalism, transnationalism, internationalism, and their significance for class analysis. The foreign-language labor and Left press has been surveyed, and evaluated, but this rich source has not yet been mined extensively." -- Donna Gabaccia, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
