See Anthony L. LaRuffa's fine study in which he refers to the "ongoing" process of ethnicity. LaRuffa thoughtfully argues that "these traditional communities" are constantly reproducing "cultural phenomena" whose immediate historical origins are discernible in the Italian countryside. See Monte Carmelo: An Italian-American Community in the Bronx ( New York, 1988). Also see Marianna DeMarco Torgovnick's "On Being White, Female, and Born in Bensonhurst", in The Best American Essays, 1991, ed. Joyce C. Oates ( New York, 1991), pp. 223-235.

Mouffe, ed., Gramsci and Marxist Theory ( London, 1979); Christine Buci-Glucksman, Gramsci and the State ( London, 1979); and my study, entitled "Gramsci's Views on Consent and its Basis as an Alternate Political Route", Differentia: Review of Italian Thought, Autumn
