Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Charles Moskos is a Greek American sociologist involved in teaching one of the few courses dealing with the subject of his book, Greek Americans. His book is a broad overview of this ethnic group, with both an historical and sociological perspective. The topic is interesting, for the Greeks are one of the few ”New Immigrant” groups to achieve rapid upward mobility without vanishing into the melting pot. Since the success of most southern and eastern European groups has been marked by a slow and uneven upward climb, the Greeks offer an instructive contrast.
