Summary
The author offers many new insights for students of migration and ethnicity across several social science disciplines. Focusing on the ordinary immigrants who have often been ignored in the historical record, he demonstrates that German newcomers arrived with fewer resources than previously supposed but that they were remarkably successful in becoming independent farmers. Originally published in 1987. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905
