Almost All Aliens: Immigration, Race, and Colonialism in American History and Identity is the most thorough reinterpretation of the shape and meaning of immigration in United States history that has been written in several decades. Drawing on the insights of ethnic studies and the issues raised by new immigration in the last third of the twentieth century, Almost All Aliens presents a major new interpretation of a fundamental issue in US history and public policy.
