From All Points: America's Immigrant West, 1870s-1952 by Elliott Robert Barkan. Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 2007. 598 pp. ISBN 978-0-253-34851-7.

Reviewer Walter D. Kamphoefner (Texas A&M University) writes "...Barkan provides a view of immigration to the West that is both panoramic and analytical, above all highlighting the difference in reception that immigrants encountered depending on whether or not they were "visible minorities." The relatively low profile of Germans, both in the book and in the society of the American West, can be taken as an index of their relatively easy acculturation."
