Absorbingly interesting, provided the reader's desire is to discover through these pages, the maly of the immigrant or the second generation American, confronted with a realization that the ""Old country complex"" is a vital thing in his psychology, and that he is a wholly new relation to his associates ""from many lands"" not because of what America offers him, but of what has happened to his homeland today. Adamic had started, with From ny , to publish his findings in the survey of these ""new Americans"", at white best he has rushed to press this book, and carries the reader ong with him in his dor for the mission he has set himself,- the harnessing of this dox to the and that our foreign born and their children and children's children may prepared to supply the lens of that American Revolution in post-war Europe, that ution which will make us all citizens of the world. The book is interesting for more than this, however, for it should help these new Americans today to understand themselves tter; and help the rest of us to greater tolerance and another step towards unity.
