Editorial Reviews

Review

"Historians of migration will welcome Mark Wyman's new book on the elusive subject of persons who returned to Europe after coming to the United States. Other scholars have dealt with particular national groups . . . but Wyman is the first to treat . . . every major group . . . . Wyman explains returning to Europe as not just the fulfillment of original intentions but also the result of 'anger at bosses and clocks, nostalgia for waiting families,' nativist resentment and heavy-handed Americanization programs, and a complex of other problems. . . . Wyman's 'nine broad conclusions' about the returnees deserve to be read by everyone concerned with international migration."—Journal of American History



"This book fills an important lacuna and will prove a welcome text for immigration history courses."—American Historical Review



"Wyman has written a fine book about the 4,000,000 or so European immigrants to the United States who arrived in this country between 1880 and 1930 and who chose to return to their native lands . . . . Even though much of the material is familiar, getting to look at it from another perspective is extraordinarily worthwhile."—Labor History



"A wide-ranging and carefully researched work . . . . In telling the story of 'temporary immigrants,' Wyman displays a historian's eye for the big picture and a journalist's ear for compelling anecdotes."—Journal of Economic History

I kept turning pages to see what happens next to our cousins that returned to their mother countries. The US was certainly not utopia for all that came here. Wyman stays tight and true to his subject, but the words flow so easily I read the book in one sitting.

real eye opener in light of the current immigration debate. Helps you cut through the current politicized rhetoric on the issue

Great book! Very interesting to read the various qualitative data presented in the book. Paper back proves for a light book.
