    ABC-CLIO 2017; US$ 60.00

    Between 1820 and 1920, more than 33 million Europeans immigrated to the United States seeking the "American Dream."

But as historian Christina A. Ziegler-McPherson... more...

  • Migration, Mobility and Modernizationby David Siddle

    Liverpool University Press 2000; US$ 73.99

    For almost a hundred years the academic study of migration concentrated on evolving standardised models of migration behaviour based on data from censuses or the registration of births, marriages and deaths. More recently, it has been realised that such models fail to take into account the decision-making behind migration and that better understanding... more...

  • Moving Livesby Kathy Burrell

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Immigrants in Britain are often viewed as just that - 'immigrants'. Their experiences as migrants are sidelined in favour of discussions about assimilation and integration - how 'they' adapt to 'us'. This book refocuses debates about migration by following the experiences, memories and perceptions of three migrant groups in Britain: the Polish, Italian... more...

  • Postcolonial Minorities in Britain and Franceby Shailja Sharma

    Manchester University Press 2016; US$ 115.00

    This book examines how Britain and France, with their different political histories, are handling the new religious and racial diversity that has become a fact of life in both countries, and demonstrates how postcolonial minorities are caught between the nation and the state in relation to status and identity, acceptance and integration. more...
