Here is the first comprehensive cross-disciplinary work to examine the current health situation of our immigrants, successfully integrating the vast literature of diverse fields -- epidemiology, health services research, anthropology, law, medicine, social work, health promotion, and bioethics -- to explore the richness and diversity of the immigrant population from a culturally-sensitive perspective.
This unequalled resource examines methodological issues, issues in clinical care and research, health and disease in specific immigrant populations, patterns of specific diseases in immigrant groups in the US, and conclusive insight towards the future.
Complete with 73 illustrations, this singular book is the blueprint for where we must go in the future.

The quality of the contributions is ... excellent. By presenting comprehensive syntheses of the literature, this collection offers valuable information and insights of use to clinicians, researchers, and policy makers.'
