9780812217889: The Uprooted: The Epic Story of the Great Migrations That Made the American People

Awarded the 1952 Pulitzer Prize in history, The Uprooted chronicles the common experiences of the millions of European immigrants who came to America in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries—their fears, their hopes, their expectations. The New Yorker called it "strong stuff, handled in a masterly and quite moving way," while the New York Times suggested that "The Uprooted is history with a difference—the difference being its concerns with hearts and souls no less than an event."

The book inspired a generation of research in the history of American immigration, but because it emphasizes the depressing conditions faced by immigrants, focuses almost entirely on European peasants, and does not claim to provide a definitive answer to the causes of American immigration, its great value as a well-researched and readable description of the emotional experiences of immigrants, and its ability to evoke the time and place of America at the turn of a century, have sometimes been overlooked. Recognized today as a foundational text in immigration studies, this edition contains a new preface by the author.

About the Author:

Oscar Handlin is Emeritus Professor of History, Harvard University. Among his many books are The American People in the Twentieth Century, Race and Nationality in American Life, and Boston's Immigrants, 1790-1880.

Review:

"This book offers a historical perspective on international migrations dealing with a wide range of issues that are still very relevant. It is a worthwhile read and improves our understanding of the link between migration and the liberal shift occurring worldwide from the early days of capitalism until today."—Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies



"Oscar Handlin was the scholar most responsible for establishing the legitimacy of immigration history."—Gary Gerstle, author of American Crucible
