Thomas Sowell provides us with a useful and concise record tracing the history of nine ethnic groups: Irish, Germans, Jews, Italians, Chinese, Japanese, Blacks, Puerto Ricans, and Mexicans. Going beyond fascinating trivia (Did you know "there are more people of Irish ancestry in the United States than in Ireland and more Jews than in Israel?"), he explains each ethnic group's varied experiences in adapting to American society.
