First Edition. Octavo, red cloth (hardcover), gilt letters, xiv + 218 pp. Near-Fine, in a Good+, mylar protected dust jacket with light edgewear and soiling. From dust jacket: The papers included in this volume are part of a growing body of scholarship that focuses on interaction between immigrants and American society. They illustrate an emerging consensus among a sizable group of historians that ethnic backgrounds molded the responses of immigrant groups to American society. Transplanted European cultures were, according to these analyses, sufficiently flexible and resilient not only to survive and adapt to their new home but also to have an impact on the new environment they had to come to terms with. These conclusions stand in marked contrast to previous accounts, which argued that the immigrant's encounter with industrial America was overwhelmingly disorienting and destructive of traditional life-styles.
