Robert Fass's deliberately paced narration is appropriate for this audiobook as the outrageous history it recounts does not need much help to spark a reaction from the listener. This is the story of the United States' treatment of immigrants over the years, and it's not a pretty one. There have been expulsions, criminalizations, racism, detentions, brutality, and exploitation done in the name of and with the blessing of the federal government. Goodman traces individual events and policies, emphasizing their impact on real human beings. Fass is sometimes rhythmic in his delivery and can on occasion elongate pauses or consonants. His overall performance is fairly understated; it's a suitably unobtrusive support for this painful and shameful story. G.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2020]
