Powell (history, Oklahoma Baptist U.) presents some 300 entries on events, themes, people, places, and legislation related to immigration, for high school and general readers. In his preface he identifies his goals, which include a focus on historical factors that spurred immmigration, coverage of the US and Canada, presentation of recent census data, and assembly of extensive further reading lists for each entry. Numerous historical black-and-white photographs, maps, graphs, and tables complement the text, as do a glossary, an appendix of document excerpts, and a general bibliography. Arrangement of entries is alphabetical, with access afforded through a list of entries by theme—with the biggest number of entries under "immigrant groups"—and a general index.
