In this collection, the editors seek to address the recent rebirth of interest in immigrant letters. As these letters are increasingly seen as key, rather than incidental, documents in the interpretations of gender, age, social class, and ethnicity/nationality, the scholars gathered here demonstrate a diversity of new approaches to their interpretation.

In The Press
Rarely does a historical study illuminate subject, methodology, and theory all at once. Letters Across Borders is just such a book. It is a marvelous collection of essays that should be read and re-read by every historian who works in migration studies and indeed by all scholars who seek to understand and interpret the human experience through personal correspondence.
