Sources: American Immigration: An Encyclopedia of Political, Social, and Cultural Change

Eric Novotny


The first edition of the work, published as the Encyclopedia of American Immigration (Sharpe, 2001), garnered widespread praise. It was described by reviewers as "well-researched, well-written…" and "impressive" (Choice, Oct. 2011); "essential in academic libraries and extremely useful in large and medium-sized public libraries." (Booklist, Nov.1, 2001); and "An asset to any library supporting research in American history or immigration." (School Library Journal, Feb. 2002). The advisory board consisted of "well-recognized experts in the field" (Library Journal, Sept. 15, 2001). Given this critical reception, it is little wonder that Sharpe choose to revisit such a well-regarded reference work.
