The United States has been the world's leader in scientific discovery for almost a century-certainly due in no small part to the contributions of immigrants, Yet people arriving in the United States from elsewhere have often faced some measure of hostility or suspicion, even though the country continues to be built on the backs of immigrants. This book looks at the scientific achievements of early immigrants, such as Joseph Priestley, Nikola Tesla, Enrico Farmi, and Albert Einstein. It also explores the contributions of modern immigrant scientists from every continent.
