America Unabridged: The Readers Respond
June/July 2005 | Volume 56, Issue 3
I’m sorry Kevin Baker overlooked Oscar Handlin’s The Uprooted in his collection of great books on the subject of immigration. This easy-to-read book not only turned me on to our history but gave me a new respect for my parents, who came to this country in the 192Os. And it seems to do the same to everyone else who takes my advice to read it.
