Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Why should readers and students of ethnic studies be interested in essays on a group who are no longer a viable ethnic minority and who wrote primarily in a language few Americans read? The answer is that their literature and history are a part of American culture; it also is to be found in the similarities between the problems and attitudes of the Norwegian immigrants a century ago and the situations of contemporary ethnic groups. A perusal of this volume can contribute insights into the American ethnic experience.
