The French in the United States: An Ethnographic Study

Synopsis

Contemporary French immigrants have a high degree of integration into American society in terms of socio-demographic features and behavior patterns. While the foreign-born generation maintains a French identity beneath the surface, acculturation seems inevitable in later generations, due to a variety of social and attitudinal factors. Lindenfeld examines these factors, shedding light on a population that has, until now, remained fairly invisible.
