Metadata[+] Show full item record
The attempt was made to present the results of an investigation of the problem of Jewish immigration to this country. Since an original study of this problem was not possible, it devolved upon the writer to take all that has been written on the subject and was available here, both the good and the bad, the scientific and the purely sentimental, and to separate the wheat from the chaff of this material in order to arrive at a rational conclusion regarding this vast subject. The writer was guided in this process of selection by her own intimate acquaintance with Jews and with immigrants. It was due to this vast amount of reading that the writer felt the necessity of a strictly scientific attitude in a discussion of this nature.
