The Road to Citizenship: What Naturalization Means for Immigrants in the United States

Sarah Allen Gershon of Georgia State University reviews The Road to Citizenship: What Naturalization Means for Immigrants in the United States, by Sofya Aptekar. This book presents a unique empirical and theoretical approach to understanding the barriers standing in the way of citizenship, the reasons migrants seek to naturalize, and the messages they receive about their incorporation in the United States. The book author, who relies on in-depth interviews, historical data, and content analysis, presents a clear picture of the naturalization experience in contemporary America.
