On Persecution, Identity & Activism by Cristogianni Borsella
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is a definitive work on the many trials and tribulations that American-Italians have suffered over the past 120 years. While other books have focused on specific areas of anti-Italianism, Cristogianni's work encompasses the great bulk of persecution that existed in the United States, through the use of a historical timeline. The book also shows the reader how Italian-American identity has evolved though the years, and that there is still no consensus on its definition. Modern activism is addressed as well, especially the ongoing anti-defamation campaign and the Columbus Day controversy. Due to the striking similarities between Italian immigrants of the past and immigrants of the present, "On Persecution, Identity & Activism" is truly a must read for anyone wishing to better understand the vexing immigration questions of our own times.
