During the mid-1960s, the laws regulating immigration to both the United States and Canada were rewritten, opening the door for millions of immigrants from Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Some of the books in the IMMIGRATION series focus on the experiences of people from a specific country or region, giving a history of immigration and explaining why they came to America and how they have succeeded. Other volumes look at immigration-related issues, such as the status of refugees or the deportation process. Each book contains statistical charts and information. A chronology, glossary of terms, a guide to additional resources for more information, text-dependent questions and report ideas, and an index supplement the up-to-date information provided within the books.
