This new, abridged edition of the classic five-volume work The Polish Peasant in Europe and America brings together documents and commentary that illuminate the lives of the nearly two million Poles who emigrated to America between 1880 and 1910. The new introduction and epilogue make the book especially valuable in teaching United States history survey courses as well as immigration history and introductory sociology courses.
"Of great interest to students and teachers of immigrant history as well as to those of Polish descent." -- San Francisco Chronicle "Deserves the attention of social scientists and others who are more familiar with the study's general theses than with its documentary eveidence."-Eugene Obidinsky, Polish American Studies
