The United States has long been known as a nation of immigrants. Most current residents originally came from someplace else, or at least their forebears did. This course will examine the process and the history of immigration to North America across a broad cross-section of individuals of numerous national origins and ethnic groups. There will also be a consideration of the political, social, and economic conditions in both the native country and the receiving country which might have encouraged a person to emigrate or influenced his or her reception in the adopted country.
