about

The World Comes to America provides an overview of the groups of immigrants who arrived in the United States after World War II ended in 1945. Authors Leonard Dinnerstein and David M. Reimers examine the groups who came to America, explaining their reasons for immigrating, noting where theysettled, and discussing how they fared once they arrived. The authors cover conflicting American attitudes towards welcoming strangers and the different policies that congress pursued to aid - or to delay - the entry of foreigners to America.
Leonard Dinnerstein is Professor Emeritus of History at the University of Arizona. David M. Reimers is Professor Emeritus of History at New York University.
