Not "A Nation of Immigrants," by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz

Staff Pick

Dunbar-Ortiz builds on her classic An Indigenous People’s History of the United States by examining how the US “legalized” its occupation of ethnically cleansed Indigenous Lands by recruiting immigrant settlers to build its population. She dissects historical distinctions between “good” and “bad” immigrants, and the dubious myth of the “perfect immigrant,” illustrating how immigrants are expected to integrate themselves into the country's continuing program of white supremacy and settler-colonialism.
