    Immigration and Society: A Historical and Sociological Approach is a succinct and handy textbook that covers the critical information a student needs to understand the laws themselves from the Treaty of Paris in 1793 to the present laws.

    The book explores immigration as a process that began at the start of the Republic. It also examines the policies that changed depending on immigrants of the day, including where they came from, the culture they brought, their skin color, and in some cases, their religion as well as the perceived threats they were alleged to be bringing. This text also provides, in some cases, the full legislation to examine as needed.

    Immigration and Society provides students with a brief yet detailed exploration of the history of immigration in the United States. The book is an excellent resource for sociology courses, particularly those at the undergraduate level, and can also be used by students in the studies of the history of immigration, law and society, and ethnic studies. It is also suitable for a course on how wars impact immigration.
