Scots began settling in North America in the earliest colonial days.

Though rendered almost invisible both by clustering under the umbrella of the British Commonwealth and by the fact that few Sc... View more info

By: Arthur W. Helweg.

Price: $11.95

Publisher: Michigan State University Press: c2002

Seller ID: 136216


Since 1970, a growing number of Asian Indians have called Michigan home. Representative of the "new immigration," Asian Indians come from a democratic country, are well-educated, and come from middle- and upper-class families. Unlike older immigrant groups, Asian Indians do not form urban ethnic enclaves or found their own communities to meet the challenges of living in a new society. As Arthur W. Helweg shows, Asian Indians in Michigan contribute to the richness... View more info

History has almost forgotten these immigrants, who were instrumental in developing the large urban centers of Michigan and the United States, and who specifically contributed to development of the auto industry and struck in 1913-1914 for better working conditi...

One of the most vibrant and influential ethnic groups in Michigan, Poles have a long history of migration and settlement in the Great Lakes State.

Although Hungarians settled throughout the state, the locus of the Hungarian community ... View more info

Frances Trix explores the ways in which Michigan's Albanian community has forged an unusual co... View more info
