Check it: I’m a French-using snob. Anyway, I’ve been plotting out my prelim reading (holy FUCK there’s a lot), and here’s what’s on tap for today:
Walter Nugent, Crossings: The Great Transatlantic Migrations, 1870-1914
Roger Daniels, Guarding the Golden Door: American Immigration Policy and Immigrants Since 1882
John M. Cooper, Pivotal Decades: The United States, 1900-1920
David Kennedy, Over Here: The First World War and American Society
Lester Chandler, America’s Greatest Depression
Thoughts? Suggestions? Concise book reviews that would keep me from having to read these things? Kidding, kidding.
