The Oxford Handbook of American Immigration and Ethnicity explores how Americans think of themselves and how science, religion, period of migration, gender, education, politics, intermarriage, and occupational mobility shape both this image and American life. Since the Immigration Act opened the gates to newer groups, historical writing on immigration and ethnicity has evolved over the years to include numerous immigrant sources and to provide trenchant analyses of American immigration and ethnicity. For the first time, this handbook brings together twenty-nine leading scholars in the field to make sense of all the themes, methodologies, and trends that characterize the debate on American immigration. They examine a wide range of topics, including panethnicity, whiteness, intermarriage, bilingualism, religion, museum ethnic displays, naturalization, regional mobility, immigration legislation and its reception, ethnicity-related crime and gang formation, and the forms of communication with the homeland.

Today they are the most likely of any major racial or ethnic group in America to live in mixed neighborhoods and to marry across racial lines. Asians recently passed Hispanics as the largest group of new immigrants to the United States.

Indentured servitude in British America emerged in part due to the high cost of passage across the Atlantic Ocean ,   and as a consequence, which colonies indentured servants immigrated to depended upon which colonies their patrons chose to immigrate to. Like the entire indentured servant population in the Chesapeake Colonies at the time, 40 to 50 percent died before completing their contracts. This was due in large part to the Tidewater region's highly malignant disease environment, with most not establishing families and dying childless because the population of the Chesapeake Colonies, like the Thirteen Colonies in the aggregate, was not sex-balanced until the 18th century because three-quarters of the immigrants to the Chesapeake Colonies were male and in some periods, or male-to-female and fewer than 1 percent were over the age of

Стратмор закрыл лицо руками. - Хорошо. Это на нижнем этаже. Возле фреоновых помп. Сьюзан повернулась и направилась к двери, но на полпути оглянулась.
Хейл похитил пароли просто так, ради забавы. Теперь же он был рад, что проделал это, потому что на мониторе Сьюзан скрывалось что-то очень важное. Задействованная ею программа была написана на языке программирования Лимбо, который не был его специальностью.
