Race and Immigration in United States is a collection of the very best of the new generation of scholarship in the field of immigration history published in the 1990s and 2000s. The best new scholars in the history of race and ethnicity have pointed out that the traditional Ellis Island model of immigrant assimilation is not adequate to understand American history. They suggest a more subtle model that does not exclude peoples of color from view, and does not treat the experiences of European immigrants as a template for the experiences of non-White migrants. Race makes a crucial difference and has done so throughout American history. This collection brings the insights of ethnic studies scholarship into history. It also keeps in view the fact that some people lived here first#xE2;#xAC;#x1D;that the first facts of immigration history are the genocide and dispossession of North America#xE2;#xAC;"s native peoples, and that they are relevant to the immigration story throughout much of American history. Race and Immigration in the United States will be an essential collection for anyone studying race and ethnicity in American history.
