"The purpose of this study [is] to follow the immigrant from the port of entry, through some of the troubles that call for the intervention of the law, to see to what extent the law reaches his troubles, how far the administration of law secures for him the substantial justice aimed at in any legal system, what is done ... to adjust him to our laws and legal procedure, and what are his reactions in the way of satisfaction with the country and friendliness to it"--Introd., p. xv.
