Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Golden Door...is an admirable and daring work....Professor Kessner has suceeded in blending the best of all possible worlds; he has merged quantitative data with literary and sociological sources to produce a synthetic work of high quality....a major contribution to both quantitative and comparative ethnic history. It is a pioneering study, and should serve as [a] guide...for future research."—Caroline Golab, Journal of European Economic History
