Explorations in Ethnic Studies
Virginia Yans-McLaughlin has made a major contribution to the study of ethnic immigration history, in general, and to the existing knowledge of the Italian Americans, in particular. In Family and Community, Italian Immigrants in Buffalo, 1880—1930, she explores the relationship between the social and economic roots of the contadini from the Italian mezzogiorno and their life in urban industrial America.
