Synopsis

"The Dream of America: Immigration 1870-1920" provides a detailed, factual account of the greatest sustained wave of immigration in US history. This volume explains the economic and political forces that drove emigrants from Europe and other parts of the world, as well as the factors that made America so attractive to millions. It covers all aspects of the immigrants' experience, including their arduous ocean journeys, their passage through Ellis Island, and their struggles to build a better life in America. Finally, the book provides details of America's immigration history from the 1920s through the present - including America's current struggles with illegal immigration.

Kevin Hillstrom is an independent scholar who has written extensively about American history, politics, and environmental issues. His most recent work is U.S. Environmental Politics and Policy: A Documentary History.
