American Arrivals highlights the important insights of anthropology for the field of migration studies. Addressing issues of health care, education, and cultural values and practices among Mexicans, Haitians, Somalis, Afghans, and other newcomers to the United States, the authors illuminate the complex ways that immigrants adapt to life in a new land and raise serious questions about the meaning and political uses of ideas about cultural difference. Contributors to this study focus upon the anthropological and cultural aspects of immigration to the United States. The editor's opening chapter addresses the past immigration situation and the moral challenges faced by the United States in terms of cultural migration.
