"This book illuminates a rarely seen side of contemporary immigration to the U.S., whose prevailing image is of non-Europeans, coming from Africa, Asia, and Latin America--yet also among the immigrants are hundreds of thousands of Italians. The authors of the volume show how the new immigrants ' presence alters our understanding of the white ethnic story as viewed through the lenses of families, communities, and politics. The book represents an indispensable contribution to ethnic and immigration studies."--Richard Alba, co-author of Strangers No More: The Challenges of Integration in North America and Western Europe"An exceptionally good volume that is innovative and will change the game in Italian American studies. This magnificent collection has no competition. "--Graziella Parati, author of Migration Italy: The Art of Talking Back in a Destination Culture"New Italian Migrations to the United States, Vol. 1, provides distinctive and significant insights into recent Italian immigrants while also offering instructive comparisons with other migrant populations." --Italian American Review
