The Assimilation of Ethnic Groups: The Italian Case

The Assimilation of Ethnic Groups: The Italian Case

The Assimilation of Ethnic Groups: The Italian Case presents a brief overview of the Italian experience in the “Old” and the “New” Country. The major portion of the book deals with the degree to which Italian Americans have departed from a traditional, ethnic way of life, as indicated by a survey among 469 Italian Americans in the Bridgeport, Connecticut area. The final chapters discuss Italian American ethnicity today and the character of the “New Ethnicity”. The book is written in a clear and forthright style understandable to the layperson. It is of special interest to students of ethnicity, both inside and outside of academia, but especially in the former.
