During the mid-1960s, the laws regulating immigration to both the United States and Canada were rewritten. Traditionally, the majority of immigrants had come from western European countries; the revised immigration acts opened the door for millions of immigrants from Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Some of the books in the series. The Changing Face of North America: Immigration Since 1965 focus on the immigration experiences of people from a specific country or region, giving a history of immigration and explaining why they came to America and how they have succeeded. Other volumes look at immigration-related issues, such as the status of refugees and the deportation process. Each book contains up-to-date statistical charts and information, and the series has been carefully edited to provide a comprehensive overview of how the arrival of new immigrants has changed the United States and Canada--and how coming to North America has changed the immigrants.
