The Immigrant in American History

Between 1815 and 1914 alone, fifty million emigrants set out from Europe for all corners of the world, including the Americas, tearing themselves away from the environment they knew and enduring many a hardship to forge a new path to a distant land.¬†Across this collection of essays Hansen draws upon his own history and experiences of Americanisation, charting colonisation, showing how immigrants’ identities evolve across the generations, and how their contributions over history have enriched the American culture.
