MEDIA REVIEWS
"This narrative reference text thematically explores the daily life experiences of immigrants to the United States arriving since the passage of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965. Aiming to make the work accessible to high school students and a general readership, Strobel (U. of Massachusetts) offers chapters on the diversity of immigrant communities and their migration stories; the economic positions and activities of immigrant communities; identity, family relations, intergenerational issues, and other issues of family life; the community life and culture of immigrants and interactions with the rest of society; issues of stereotyping and discrimination; and the impact of politics and policy on the daily life of immigrants." - Reference & Research Book News
"This insightful work is a suitable addition for schools with AP or other college preparatory programs." - School Library Journal
