Immigration, Incorporation and Transnationalism is an intriguing collection of articles and essays. It was developed to commemorate the twenty-fifth anniversary of The Journal of American Ethnic History. Its purpose, like that of the Immigration and Ethnic History Society, is to integrate interdisciplinary perspectives and exciting new scholarship on important themes and issues related to immigration and ethnic history. The essays in this work encompass broad perspectives, case studies, and recent developments. Nancy Foner, in "Then and Now," discusses immigration to New York City from both contemporary and historic perspectives. Christiane Harzig, in "Domestics of the World (Unite?)" explores labor migration systems and personal trajectories of household domestics from both global and historic perspectives. Val Johnson, in "The Moral Aspects of Complex Problems," looks at New York City electoral campaigns against vice and the incorporation of immigrants from 1890-1901. Roger Daniels delves into U.S. immigration policy in a time of war from 1939-1945. Diane Vecchio, in "Ties of Affection," relates family narratives in the history of Italian migration. Barbara Posadas and Roland Guyotte present Chicago's Filipinos in the aftermath of World War II. Deborah Moore asks if anyone is ever "At Home in America?" by revisiting second generation immigrants.
