American Arrivals highlights the important insights of anthropology for the field of migration studies. Addressing issues of health care, education, and cultural values and practices among Mexicans, Haitians, Somalis, Afghans, and other newcomers to the United States, the authors illuminate the complex ways that immigrants adapt to life in a new land and raise serious questions about the meaning and political uses of ideas about cultural difference.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'...a comprehensive and clear overview of the main topics concerning contemporary migration scholars which will be of interest to students and researchers across the social sciences focusing not only on the US but also on other geographical areas affected by new mass migrations. The book is successful in arguing for the importance of ethnography in migration research as well as in proposing a stimulating agenda for future research.' - Elisabeth Zontini in Ethnic and Racial Studies 'The book as a whole, and Foner's introductory chapter in particular, are very successful in pointing out how anthropologists have tackled the issue of migration in the past and the strengths of their current work. '... the books provides a comprehensive and clear overview of the main topics concerning migration scholars which will be of interest to students and researchers across the social sciences focusing not only on the US, but also on other geographical areas affected by new mass migrations. The book is successful in arguing for the importance of ethnography in migration research, as well as proposing a stimulating agenda for future research. Such research will push the boundaries of anthropology by including reflection on the political implications of the knowledge anthropologists produce and by moving towards more systematic interdisciplinary collaborations and comparative research which will help to place research on migrants more firmly in the field of transitional studies and globalization.' Elizabetta Zontini in Enthnic and Racial Studies
