      The purpose of the book, Strangers at Our Gates, which is authored by Valerie Knowles, “describes briefly the different kinds of immigrants who have settled in this country over the centuries and the immigration policies that have helped to define the character of immigration in various periods” (p. ix).Stating the obvious, and similar to Knowles, racism played a role in Canadian. “The Stranger” speaks to the difficulty of living with foreigners in one’s own land. It is not the stranger that is rejected, but where he is — “within my gates”. Where the men in Kipling’s time thought the differences between peoples were immutably tied to their blood, in our own time we take a more nuanced view.

      There is no culture for the strangers within our gates to adopt, because we’re busy adopting everyone else’s—and the greatest American value these days seems to be our insistence that no one should be allowed to tell us how to live our lives. .
