Focusing on a key topic in the social studies curriculum, this series describes the history of U.S. immigration by exploring the experiences of major groups of immigrants from diverse parts of the world. Each volume explains the factors that led people to leave their homelands, the challenges they faced as immigrants, and their cultures and communities today. Ideal for reports, the series includes time lines, maps, and charts of statistics gathered from U.S. government immigration and census agencies. Photos and primary source quotations provide a personal look at immigration by sharing the faces, names, and dreams of people who hoped for a better life. Brief biographies of notable Americans from each immigrant group highlight the achievements of U.S. immigrants and their descendants.Anderson, Dale is the author of 'Italian Americans ', published 2006 under ISBN 9780836873252 and ISBN 0836873254.
