This text examines how multitudes of US immigrants have adapted to a new culture while trying to preserve their ethnic identities, and how acculturation has impacted their lives and changed the cultural profile of American society. By looking at issues of specific concern to certain nationalities as well as cross-national concerns such as education and the role of women, the contributors attempt to answer questions arising from immigration and identify new challenges which must be faced as the USA becomes increasingly multilingual and multicultural. For example, they study how first-wave European immigrants, their descendants and the more recent arrivals from Asia, the Caribbean and Latin America have helped shape America's past and present history, and they pose new questions regarding assimilation and acculturation within a maturing economy.
