"Salad Bowl" best describes the American Immigration experience, as the editors of this volume aptly picture it. Like a salad bar, this volume offers a variety of articles for academics and the general public to pick and choose, if interest in immigration concerns them in the least. Overall, this book is divided into three major sections, with a theme underlying each division of essays and research pieces. The offerings include: a select study of ethnic minorities and their history with varieties of social-cultural experiences of ethnic groups; a look at the impact of ethnic challenges to the United States; a focus on the inflow of new migrants into the country, with discussions of government policy matters at both Federal and State levels; and arguments over assimilation/acculturation. Also included is a brief index, plus short profiles of contributing writers. Each article provides updated current literature on migration helpful as resource information.
