Achieving the American Dream

Alfred K. Ho

This work examines the lives of 163 elite immigrants who have achieved the American dream while gaining fortune and fame. With this sample of immigrants, Professor Emeritus Alfred K. Ho provides a portrait of a successful candidate for U.S. immigration. Through his study, he presents detailed analyses of what fields these immigrants have achieved in, why they immigrated, and what they chose to do with their fortunes. Ultimately, Achieving the American Dream is a testament to the American democracy and open society that is the main attraction to these immigrants who are as necessary to the U.S. as we are to them. « less more »
