Immigrant Minds, American Identities by Orm Overland

Book Description

The author sums it up best: "What I call 'homemaking myths' are stories told in immigrant/ethnic groups both to bolster members' confidence in their identities as Americans and to prove to other Americans, in particular the traditionally dominant groups, that their particular group has a unique right to a home in the United States. "
