This work updates an established American textbook on immigration and ethnic history, demonstrating the post-war shift from European to Third World immigrants. Extensive revisions include a discussion of undocumented immigration and the Simpson-Rodino Bill. All the important events of the last five years, especially the 1990 Immigration Act, are presented. The author examines the changes in refugee status and highlights the new wave of East European and Soviet immigrants to the USA.
