Very good. No dust jacket. xv, , 685,  p. Footnotes. Bibliographical Notes and References. Index of Names. Index of Subjects. The intention of this volume is to make the area of immigration policy more accessible by providing both a reference source and an aid to research on immigration policy development. What the first part of this volume does is provide a chronological account, session by session of congressional action on immigration bills, whether they were eventually passed or not. The 2nd half of the book then traces the development of certain lines or elements of immigration policy that run through the bills enacted into law. It becomes evident that over their long history American immigration law and policy have grown into certain well established patterns but at the same time have continued to evolve through additions and amendments.
