Donald Heisel, Professor of Sociology at Fordham University, reviews Turkish Migration to the United States: From Ottoman Times to the Present. The book presents an overview of Turkish migration to the United States. The Turkish migration flow to the U.S. is relatively small, with an estimated 400,000 long term emigrants settled in the U.S. between the early 19th century and the early 21st century, and less than 100,000 foreign born Turks in the U.S. today. The editors, A. Deniz Balgamis and Kemal H. Karpat, examine Turkish migration to the U.S. by dividing it into three phases, which are each outlined.
