Mirel J. Patriotic pluralism: Americanization education and European immigrants. Cambridge, Mass.: Harvard University Press; 2010. Abstract

"In this book, a leading historian of education retells the story we think we know, in which public schools forced a draconian Americanization on the great waves of immigration of a century ago. Ranging from the 1890s through the World War II years, Jeffrey Mirel argues that Americanization was a far more nuanced and negotiated process from the start, much shaped by immigrants themselves."
