Immigration and Ethnic Relations in the U.S.

(Newly Revised First Edition)
Edited by Takeyuki Tsuda

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-5165-0000-0, 282 pages


The dramatic increase in immigration from Latin American and Asian countries in the last several decades is profoundly reshaping race and ethnic relations in the United States, the world’s premier nation of immigrants. Immigration and Ethnic Relations in the U.S. contains a series of accessible readings written by an interdisciplinary group of leading scholars that will provide undergraduate students with an introductory overview of various topics related to immigration to the United States.

These topics include the causes of migration, its political, economic, and social impact, and its transnational, identity, gender, diasporic, and citizenship consequences for immigrants and refugees. The anthology then examines the ethnic diversity created by immigration through a collection of readings that cover the history of immigration to the United States and provide overviews of both older and newer immigrant-origin ethnic groups including White Americans, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian Americans. Although race and ethnic relations in the United States can only be understood in the context of immigration, there are few anthologies that cover both topics.
