Editorial Reviews

The Polish Review
Stasik's classic study of Polish emigration to the United States in the first half of the nineteenth century is now made accessible to a wider audience by the long overdue translation of Eugene Podraza.... American and English scholars will appreciate this contextualization which Stasik naturally assumed was common knowledge for Polish readers.

— Kenneth F. Lewalski

Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies
It is certainly an interesting title and valuable in its discussion of an unfamiliar theme.
