Massive immigration and growth of Urban America concerned TR as he strove to impress immigrants that they needed to Americanize and become part of the fabric of the nation. The fact that Tammany Hall was incorporating legions of immigrants as voters was troubling to the Republican Party as well. This book gives an interesting look at Italian immigration in the first decade of the 20th century.
