There has been an odd reluctance on the part of historians of the Italian American experience to confront the discrimination faced by Italians and Americans of Italian ancestry. This volume is a bold attempt by an esteemed group of scholars and writers to discuss the question openly by charting the historical and cultural boundaries of stereotypes, prejudice, and assimilation. Contributors offer a continuous series of cultural encounters and experiences in television, literature, and film that deserve the attention of anyone interested in the larger themes of American history.

Italian immigration from 1945 to the present is an American phenomenon too little explored in our histories. Until now. In this new collection, Laura E. Ruberto and Joseph Sciorra edit essays by an elite roster of scholars in Italian American studies. These interdisciplinary works focus on leading edge topics that range from politics of the McCarren-Walter Act and its effects on women to the ways Italian Americans mobilized against immigration restrictions. Other essays unwrap the inner workings of multi-ethnic power brokers in a Queens community, portray the complex transformation of identity in Boston 's North End, and trace the development of Italian American youth culture and how new arrivals fit into it. Finally, Donna Gabaccia pens an afterword on the importance of this seventy-year period in U.S. migration history. Contributors: Ottorino Cappelli, Donna Gabaccia, Stefano Luconi, Maddalena Marinari, James S. Pasto, Rodrigo Praino, Laura E. Ruberto, Joseph Sciorra, Donald Tricarico, and Elizabeth Zanoni.

1892 richteten Chicago und New York zum 400-jährigen Jubiläum der Entdeckung Amerikas pompöse Großveranstaltungen aus, die Christoph Kolumbus als US-amerikanischen Nationalhelden und Boten des Fortschritts feierten. 1992 hingegen war in den USA kein Jahr der patriotischen Mega-Events: Indianische, afroamerikanische und umweltpolitische Aktivisten machten mit Protesten auf die langfristigen sozialen, ökonomischen und ökologischen Konsequenzen von 1492 aufmerksam und kritisierten den einseitigen Eurozentrismus der Entdeckungsgeschichte. Was war geschehen? Kathleen Loock rekonstruiert, wie jüdische und italienische Einwanderer Kolumbus seit dem Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts als ethnische Legitimationsfigur reklamiert und so den aktuellen multikulturellen Anti-Mythos vorbereitet haben. Die umfangreiche Studie erschließt eine beeindruckende Fülle an Quellen und leistet einen wegweisenden Beitrag zur Kolumbusforschung und zur multilingualen Aufarbeitung US-amerikanischer Kulturgeschichte.

Stereotyping, defamation, and caricaturing have been visited on virtually every ethnic group to enter the USA, thereby confirming a paradox in human relations. This volume is the first to systematically investigate and record anti-Italian discrimination in the USA. Although partially known, the full accounts have never been presented in a detailed in-depth and comprehensive recounting of the phenomenon until the publication of this volume (originally in 1973).
