Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This collection, partly in homage to Dirk Hoerder, explores a variety of migratory experiences in and to North America in ways that provide a distinctive take on events that scholars might otherwise segregate, thus missing some rich comparisons. . . . Community membership is far more complex and contested than . . . most political theorists imagine. The essays in this volume consistently reveal that lesson, and those wishing to explore its implications will find this book especially provocative. JOURNAL OF AMERICAN HISTORY, March 2006 Repositioning North American Migration History is an excellent collection of scholarship that paves the way for future studies. . . . Similar to recent scholarly efforts to . . . move beyond fixed notions of the nation-state to imagine a wider geographic and conceptual frame of community, this volume enriches and expands our study of the history of North American migrants. LABOR HISTORY, August 2007 (Mark Overmyer-Velazquez)
