This masterful synthesis of American immigration history combines East, West, and South – Ellis Island, Angel Island, and the Rio Grande – in a concise, lively, and thoughtful style.Schneider's very readable study of major immigration issues sheds new light on the immigration experience as a lived process between state policy and individual memoir. (Nancy L. Green, Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales)
Crossing Borders deserves a place on the growing shelf of immigration histories. Filled with fresh material and compelling stories, it is a useful supplement to more traditional accounts of American immigration politics and policymaking. (Tamar Jacoby New Republic online 2011-08-10)
