Supply and demand analysis is the single most important and useful tool in microeconomics. Supply and demand analysis was developed by the great British economist, Alfred Marshall, in Principles of Economics (9th edition, New York, Macmillan, [1890] 1961). To reinforce your understanding, you might look in textbooks on intermediate microeconomics. Two good references are Hal Varian, Intermediate Microeconomics (Norton, New York, 5th edition, 1999) and Walter Nicholson, Intermediate Microeconomics (7th edition, 1997, Dryden).

A recent survey of the economic issues in immigration is in George Borjas, Heaven's Door: Immigration Policy and the American Economy (Princeton University Press, Princeton, NJ, 1999).


You can examine a recent study of the impact of immigration on American society from the National Academy of Sciences, The New Americans (1997), at www.nap.edu. This site provides free access to over 1000 studies from economics and the other social and natural sciences.
