Description - Italian Workers of the World by Donna R. Gabaccia
Offering a kaleidoscopic perspective on the experiences of Italian workers on foreign soil, Italian Workers of the World explores the complex links between international class formation and nation building. Distinguished by an international panel of contributors, this wide-ranging volume examines how the reception of immigrants in their new countries shaped their sense of national identity and helped determine the nature of the multiethnic states in which they settled. Donna R. Gabaccia, Mellon Professor of History at the University of Pittsburgh, is the author of Militants and Migrants: Rural Sicilians Become American Workers and other books. Fraser M. Ottanelli, an associate professor of history at the University of South Florida, is the author of The Communist Party in the United States: From the Depression to World War II. A volume in the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Centennial Series, edited by Jon Gjerde and Vicki L. Ruiz
