"A very good and insightful book which might more accurately be subtitled 'The 500-Year (thus far) unsuccessful battle to define an American as 'Someone whose ancestry is from west of the Urals and north of the Mediterranean'. (Originally the claimed criteria were even narrower.) Sadly, nothing you are reading in the recent headlines is in any way new."
