Otis L. Graham, Jr. is professor of history, emeritus, at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He is the author or editor of over 15 books, including Debating American Immigration, 1882-Present (with Roger Daniels) and Environmental Politics and Policy, 1960s to 1990s. He lives in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.


Ethnic activists along, unfortunately, with most liberals and historians of immigration refuse to grant that efforts to restrict immigration can be inspired by anything but nativism, racism, and fear of 'the Other.' This book shows how ungrounded and unfair that assumption is. Graham's evidence and argumentation should go far toward making reasonable discussion of the issue possible.--Philip Gleason, professor emeritus, University of Notre Dame
