ABOUT THIS BOOK
      Drawing on hundreds of richly textured interviews conducted from one
        end of the country to the other, veteran journalist Sanford J. Ungar documents
        the real-life struggles and triumphs of America's newest immigrants. He
        finds that the self-chosen who arrive every day, most of them legally,
        still enrich our national character and experience and make invaluable
        political, economic, social, cultural, and even gastronomic contributions.
      "First-class journalism, a book scholars will use decades from now
        to find out what it 'felt like' to be an immigrant in the 90s. I do not
        know of a better description and analysis of contemporary immigration."
        -- Roger Daniels, author of Coming to America: A History of Immigration
        and Ethnicity in American Life
      "An excellent overview of contemporary immigration issues set within
        the context of developments in the past fifty years. Ungar makes a strong
        case for the contributions of recent immigrants and for maintaining a
        relatively open door in the face of sometimes shrill opposition."
        -- Thomas Dublin, editor of Immigrant Voices: New Lives in America
      "Exactly the right book at the right time. [Ungar] looks at the
        national controversy over immigration policy with a clear eye, producing
        a history and a convincing argument why this is no time to reverse a liberal
        welcome to newcomers that has always—in good times and bad—made
        this a better and more prosperous democracy." -- Ben H. Bagdikian,
        author of Double Vision
