This new volume of original essays focuses on the presence of European ethnic culture in American society since 1830. Among the topics explored in "Immigrant America " are the alienation and assimilation of immigrants; the immigrant home and family as a haven of ethnicity; religion, education and employment as agents of acculturation; and the contours of ethnic community in American society.
