This book makes an important contribution to analyzing and understanding the migration of Europeans and others to Latin America in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
— David Rock, University of California, Santa Barbara
Mass Migration to Modern Latin America is a comprehensive and imaginatively designed collection of thought-provoking essays. The contributions are well-crafted and wide-ranging in methodology and research as well as rich in comparative insights into individual, local, regional, national, and global experiences of mass migration in the modern era. It is the best single work so far on a subject of great importance in the history of the Americas and is essential reading for scholars and students alike.
— Richard J. Walter, Washington University, St. Louis
Social historians of the Americas will learn much here about the relationship of international migration and nation-building. The collection's comparative studies bring migration closer to the center of Latin American national histories. Furthermore, they remind North American readers that the United States is by no means the only important 'nation of immigrants' in the hemisphere.
— Donna R. Gabaccia, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
Mass Migration to Modern Latin America reflects the truly global nature of the history of human migration, both in its coverage of sending and receiving countries and its inclusion of essays by scholars from various countries and disciplines. It expands the horizons of English-language literature on the subjects tremendously. It should prove useful for scholars seeking specialized knowledge and for teachers hoping to add new dimensions to undergraduate classes in world history.
