Summary
"Almost All Aliens is a complete reinterpretation of the shape and meaning of immigration in the history of the United States. It leaves the traditional Ellis Island model of immigrant assimilation as it embraces the multicultural reality of immigration that has always existed in the United States. Almost All Aliens operates from the point of view of ethnic studies as much as history and shows that migration to America has always been linked to colonialism, slavery, and racial oppression." -- Publishers description
