From the Publisher
"Not surprisingly, the contemporary debate over immigration is often shrill and fraught with passion and fear. This new book, therefore, is a welcome contribution because it provides both documents and analysis of the topic. It is divided into 13 chapters with the first eight on historical issues and the last five on the present day debate. The guide is well illustrated, and features useful sidebars, a good bibliography, and an excellent index. Also included are two appendixes--one on key immigration legislation in US history and the other on resources for additional and updated information on all aspects of the immigration issue. This guide will be a valued volume for most public and college libraries that serve high school and undergraduate students. Additionally it will be useful to adults interested in and concerned about the ongoing immigration debate."
"This volume will appeal to a wide range of users, both those searching for historical documents on U.S. immigration as well as the more popular and controversial topics today of homeland security issues and the USA Patriot Act. Undergraduates or those interested in an overview of the history of this ongoing debate may find this compilation useful."
