Book Presentation The Routledge History of Italian Americans

The Routledge History of Italian Americans
Edited by William J. Connell and Stanislao G. Pugliese

The Routledge History of Italian Americans weaves a narrative of the trials and triumphs of one of the nation’s largest ethnic groups. This history, comprising original essays by leading scholars and critics, addresses themes that include the Columbian legacy, immigration, the labor movement, discrimination, anarchism, Fascism, World War II patriotism, assimilation, gender identity, and popular culture. This landmark volume offers a clear and accessible overview of work in the growing academic field of Italian American studies. Rich illustrations bring the story to life, drawing out the aspects of Italian American history and culture that make this ethnic group essential to the American experience.

The editors and some of the contributors to this volume will have a round-table discussion about it.
