"Fascinating . . . Kraut's narrative shows that it has always been easier to blame immigrants for epidemics than to attack the infrastructure of the disease."--New York Times

“Kraut chronicles the medical assimilation of immigrants through a series of public health and curative initiatives . . . For those interested in the public and private response to immigrant health problems, this book is a great read."--Annals of Internal Medicine
