Acquiring Editor: Willis G. Regier

The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Centennial Series focuses on immigration, ethnicity, and race as central issues in the history of the United States. The series aims to be at the forefront of research in the field, and welcomes studies of migration from Latin America, Asia, Europe, Africa, and Canada. In particular, the series encourages scholarship that is transnational in approach or that treats U.S. immigration, race, and ethnicity in comparative perspective.
