Reviews

Jacob Vigdor's From Immigrants to Americans is a lucid analysis of a central and enduring issue in our society. No other recent study of this subject matches it in economic sophistication and historical depth. It is enriched by an abundant supply of graphs and tables, allowing readers to assess for themselves the evidence upon which the author's interpretations rest.--Stephan Thernstrom, Winthrop Research Professor of History, Harvard University
Jacob Vigdor has written a must-read book on immigrant assimilation. The book examines a wide range of issues relating to the assimilation experience. It is sure to become a standard reference in this increasingly important social policy issue.--Geroge Borjas, Robert W. Scrivner Professor of Economics and Social Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School
This is a fascinating look at immigration as Americans continue to ponder the relative merits of the melting pot versus the salad bowl.--Booklist, February 2010
Vigdor's balanced analysis is important reading for anyone interested in immigration adaptation in the US.... Highly recommended.--CHOICE, August 2010
Vigdor presents some fascinating empirical findings.--Claremont Review of Books
