Abstract This book brings together leading scholars from a wide range of disciplines to provide a comprehensive account of the health and well-being of one of the fastest growing segments of the U.S. population: immigrants and their descendants. Re-orientating present-day debates over immigration, it sheds new light on understanding of population health.
