TheAlmanac volumes tell of the economic, religious and politicalforces that compelled people to seek a better life in a new land.These same forces later inspired the migration of manyAmericans to other areas in mass movements such as theWestward Expansion; the rural to urban migration; the GreatMigration of blacks in the early part of the 20th century; and themigration to the Sunbelt starting in the 1960s. The Biographiesvolumes bring the panorama of immigration and migration to apersonal level by profiling both prominent and less well-knownpeople of the immigrant experience. Insights into the movementof people are provided in the Primary Sources volume viaexcerpts from key documents as well as personal observations from immigrants and concerns about the rise in U.S. immigration from conservative talk-show host Patrick J. Buchanan.
