History of Immigration and Ethnicity in American LifeHistory of Immigration in America.
Roger Daniels
Coming to America. This revised edition is an engrossing study of various waves of immigrants to the United States from the colonial era to the present. This is a useful book for anyone who has an interest in learning brief histories of most groups of immigrants to the United States.

It also provides a theoretical understanding of the reasons for immigration. Though it is particularly useful in its examination of the pre-colonial and colonial periods.
