An exhaustive new work by more than two dozen American scholars...It's a careful, learned work aimed at educating us all as to who Americans really are these days...For those reporting on, working with or leading this increasingly diverse nation, The New Americans will serve as a thorough primer to the nuances, challenges and opportunities at hand. (Robert Behre Charleston Post and Courier)
The book is a useful primer; at once a wealth of information and a telling snapshot of current academic opinion on that all-important topic, assimilation. (Tamar Jacoby New York Post 2007-07-08)
There is not a weak or disappointing essay in the book...Waters and Ueda have succeeded in their goal of updating The Harvard Encyclopedia of American Ethnic Groups. My copy of The New Americans now sits next to that venerable old guide, as it should for any scholar of the American immigrant experience. (Peter Kivisto Ethnic and Racial Studies 2008-02-01)
