For the past two decades American scholars have been engaged in an intense examination of social mobility in American life. At the profoundest level, these studies examine the general notion that American society has been historically an open system which offered great opportunity for advancement to its poor and newcomers.

"The Golden Door...is an admirable and daring work....Professor Kessner has suceeded in blending the best of all possible worlds; he has merged quantitative data with literary and sociological sources to produce a synthetic work of high quality....a major contribution to both quantitative and comparative ethnic history. It is a pioneering study, and should serve as [a] guide...for future research."--Caroline Golab, Journal of European Economic History "The Golden Door...is an admirable and daring work....Professor Kessner has suceeded in blending the best of all possible worlds; he has merged quantitative data with literary and sociological sources to produce a synthetic work of high quality....a major contribution to both quantitative and comparative ethnic history.
