Postwar Immigrant America examines the transformation of immigration to the United States since the Second World War. An introduction summarizes the history of immigration to the U.S.before World War Two, and the six chapters that follow discuss such major themes as the development of immigration patterns, the changes in American immigration and naturalization policies, and the image of the 'melting pot' versus the concept of pluralism. Charts, tables, maps, photos, timelines, and boxes featuring immigrants' own stories are also included.
