Summary
"This text explores the full history of immigration issues in America, from those early immigrants making their way through Ellis Island, to immigration issues in modern society. With in-depth analysis of a broad range of documents, researchers come away with fresh understanding and insight to study this hot button topic. Immigration & Immigrant Communities provides detailed, thought-provoking analysis of: The Chinese Exclusion Act -- Executive Order 9066: Japanese Internment -- Cesar Chavez: Commonwealth Address -- Pope Francis' Speech to U.S. Congress on Immigrants and Refugees and much more! Each in-depth chapter guides readers with historical insight and comprehension. Written by historians and teachers, several elements explain the document's historical impact and provide thoughtful critical analysis, including a Summary Overview, Defining Moment, Author Biography, Document Analysis, and Essential Themes. Plus, an historical timeline and bibliography of important supplemental readings will support readers in understanding the broader historical events covered. The documents discussed in this volume paint a portrait of the issues and challenges face by immigrants on American soil. This volume will be a useful addition to high school and undergraduate libraries, plus history collections of all sizes." -- Publisher's website
