Description: This history of the 'new immigration' weighs the many factors that prompted the decision to leave the old world. Though the designation 'new immigrant' generally refers to southern and eastern Europeans only, this volume also includes the Chinese and Japanese who arrived in the period from 1880-1921. Kraut argues that immigration to America was but one of the many choices available to the immigrants, and that individual aptitude and desires were just as influential as cultural, social, and familial pressures to find a better life. The immigrants' impact on America and their new countrymen is also considered. Includes a very good, 32-page photographic essay
