Natives and Strangers

A History of Ethnic Americans

Sixth Edition

Leonard Dinnerstein, Roger L. Nichols, and David M. Reimers

"Who is an American?" "How does a person who is not an American become one?"

Now in its sixth edition, Natives and Strangers: A History of Ethnic Americans addresses these and many other vital questions. Comprehensive and accessible, this unique volume explores various aspects of American minority group history. Examining the impact that America has had on minority peoples and cultures--and vice versa--authors Leonard Dinnerstein, Roger L. Nichols, and David M. Reimers provide insights into the different conditions, conflicts, and contradictions that members of American minority groups experienced. They integrate the experiences of various racial, religious, and national minorities from around the globe--including American Indians, African Americans, and immigrants from Europe, Asia, Latin America, and other parts of the world--explaining how their histories intertwined with the emergence of modern America. The authors conclude with reflections on where the nation stands today as an ethnically and racially diverse society.
