Summary
This book presents the story of one specific group of immigrants who were part of the global migration of talent attracted to the U.S. in the later decades of the twentieth century and early part of the twenty-first century after U.S. immigration reform. This talent pool helped fuel U.S. economic growth and world leadership in high technology. Presented in this book are immigrants from the Former Soviet Union who tell their stories of the generally unrecognized role in this era of U.S. technology leadership.--
