Chapter 2, "The New Americans: An Overview," describes U.S. immigrants.   Cohen follows the changes in the self-perception of the immigrants – both members of the first generation who made their way to America from the end of the 19th century until World War I, and who dealt with the difficulties of integration in the new continent, and the second generation, in the period between the two world wars, who forged their unique ethnic identity in American : Michal Zamir.
