Horn Book Review

Hernandez presents the history of immigration in America and explores past and present attitudes toward the topic. The writing is solid, and the chronological organization is clear. Graphs and charts illustrating data from Gallup polls support the author's major points but can oversimplify complex issues. Photographs, some stiffly staged, help break up the text. Reading list, websites. Bib., glos., ind. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted. All rights reserved.
