Reviews

"A Nation of Nations is a necessary book on what America has become in the last half-century. It tells the stories of new immigrants to a great country and defines and celebrates an exciting new American Exceptionalism."--Richard Reeves, author of INFAMY: The Shocking Story of the Japanese-American Internment in World War II
"For anyone who believes passionately in the American ideal-- that we are a nation, while occasionally distracted or knocked off track, striving to live closer to its founding principle, that 'all are created equal'--A Nation of Nations is a welcome addition to enlarging our understanding of each other and the possibilities of the United States."--June Shih "Washington Monthly "
"The 21st century will be defined by seismic global immigration, remapping human interaction to the core, and the United States will remain the model for other nations to emulate. Tom Gjelten understands why, not only because he is a byproduct of immigration, but because he has been in the trenches--the inner cities, the rural landscapes, the contested borders--where America is reborn on a daily basis. In this probing exploration, he explains, lucidly and with compassion, the extent to which the motto e pluribus unum is the engine of progress."--Ilan Stavans, editor of Becoming Americans: Immigrants Tell Their Stories from Jamestown to Today
"Tom Gjelten sings of a new America that bravely invites newcomers. A Nation of Nations would have pleased Whitman himself for its generosity, spirit and hope. This book is both smart and moving."--Min Jin Lee, author of Free Food for Millionaires
