The Italian American Experience: An Encyclopedia

Synopsis

The millions of Italians who have migrated to the United States over the last two centuries have played a crucial -- and at times little recognized -- role in the history of their adopted country. This encyclopedia, the first book of its kind, presents the totality of the Italian American experience. The coverage includes such broad topics as the influence of Italian Americans on politics and society and their contributions to art and to the development of Catholicism in the United States.
