"On Persecution, Identity & Activism"
I’d like to tell you about my new book, On Persecution, Identity and Activism: Aspects of the Italian-American Experience from the Late 19th Century to Today. It is a definitive work on the many trials and tribulations that Italian-Americans have suffered over the past 120 years. While other books have focused on specific areas of anti-Italianism, this encompasses the great bulk of persecution that existed in the United States, through the use of a historical timeline. Lynchings, slave labor, executions, internment, discrimination, police brutality and other abuses are all covered. The book also shows the reader how Italian-American identity has evolved through the years, and that there is still no consensus on its definition. Modern activism is addressed as well, especially the ongoing anti-defamation campaign and the Columbus Day controversy. Due to the striking similarities between Italian immigrants of the past and contemporary immigrants, On Persecution, Identity and Activism is truly a “must read” for anyone attempting to better understand the vexing immigration questions of our own times.
