Between the mid-nineteenth and mid-twentieth centuries, an influx of Europeans, Asians, and Arabic speakers indelibly changed the face of Latin America. While many studies of this period focus on why the immigrants came to the region, this volume addresses how the newcomers helped construct national identities in the Caribbean, Mexico, Argentina, and Brazil.

The essays, from some of the most respected scholars of migration history, examine the responses-some welcoming, some xenophobic-to the newcomers. The contributors also look at the lasting effects that Jewish, German, Chinese, Italian, and Syrian immigrants had on the economic, sociocultural, and political institutions. They explore themes of assimilation, race formation, and transnationalism to enrich our understanding not only of migration to Latin America but also of the impact of immigration on the construction of national identity.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Present[s] sophisticated arguments that contribute to the understanding of race, ethnicity, and national identity in Latin America, as well as broader discussions of nation-building projects. Highly recommended."--Choice

"Magnificent and illuminating. . . .the volume reveals the missing elements in studies of race and mestizaje in Latin America. . . .[and] presents compelling evidence to support the importance of timing in historical processes. . . .We can now also see the extent to which Latin America has long been a continent on the move, in which displacement and rural-urban migration have, perhaps even as much as immigration from other continents, shaped the histories of peoples, states and nations."--H-Net Reviews

"Succeed[s] in providing a thought-provoking overview of immigration patterns and their relationship to the evolution of the nation in Latin America from 1850 to 1950."--Hispanic American Historical Review
"Significantly adds to the scant literature on the interplay of immigration, nation building and nationalism."--Journal of Latin American Studies
