Greek Immigrants offers readers an engaging introduction to Greek immigrants—from their immigrant history to their role in American society. After discussing the main waves of movement to the United States, this volume looks at Greek immigrants' search for a better life and the path that led them to becoming Greek Americans. Also included are several cultural notes such as the continuation of shared religious and cultural bonds between Greek Americans and Greeks still in their ancestral homeland, the practice of traditional Greek customs, and Greek communities and businesses. A final chapter examines Greek Americans in modern America, focusing on their assimilation and integration into mainstream American life. Covering everything from the history of the Greek people to the Greek Orthodox Church, this easy-to-read book is filled with information perfect for school reports, introductions to the subject, and use in any public library or middle and high school classroom.

History covered includes:

  • A brief history of the Greek people from ancient times
  • Differences between the old and new waves of immigrants
  • Anti-immigration laws and quotas passed after World War I
  • The strong ties Greeks have to their relatives
  • The many nationwide organizations Greeks have established such as the American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association (AHEPA) and the Greek American Progressive Association (GAPA).
