Its broad coverage and unbiased approach make it the go-to starting point for research on a wide variety of issues surrounding immigration throughout history. In the past ten years, major events have escalated the immigration debate in both politics and popular opinion. From the Secure Fence Act in 2006, to the controversial Arizona Bill SB-1070 in 2010, to President Obama’s 2013 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and the current talks on Immigration Reform in Washington DC, this new edition includes many new entries with up-to-date, comprehensive coverage of this important issue in current events and throughout history. The set’s 215+ articles explore immigration from a wide variety of perspectives on pivotal moments in history such as the earliest British settlements of British North America in the 17th century, to the immediate aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks, to the current Immigration Reform debate in American politics. Border Control, Law Enforcement, Court Cases, Demographics, Discrimination, Economic & Labor Issues, Events, Family Issues, Government & Politics, Illegal Immigration, Language & Education, Laws & Treaties, Nativism & Racism, Refugees, Religion, Sociological Theories and Stereotypes are all covered, to offer a single, comprehensive source for immigration research and study. Each of the alphabetically arranged articles in Issues in U.S. Immigration opens with the type of ready-reference top matter for which Salem Press’ reference works are well-known. The first entry following every title is a brief passage that defines or identifies the article’s subject. Articles on such subjects as events, court cases, organizations, and laws have additional entries that provide dates and places, as relevant. The next item in every article is a brief italicized statement summarizing its subject’s significance. Readers can thus see the most essential information about every topic at a glance. A new feature in this edition is a collection of state essays discussing regional differences within the United States. Averaging nearly 1,000 words in length, essays focus on the unique immigration histories of each state and provide tables summarizing demographic data. Essays on Washington D.C. and New York City are also included due to their significant immigrant populations. Issues in U.S. Immigration offers several features to help readers find the information they need. Finally, every article is followed by an annotated list of Further Readings and cross- references to other articles on closely related subjects.
