"Roots of the Transplanted" addresses those aspects of pre-migration culture - a conglomorate of norms, values, and experiences - which migrants bring along as their cultural baggage. Volume I, "Late 19th-Century East Central and Southeastern Europe," includes newly commissioned studies on the effect of gender in the migration experience of Croatian, Slovak, and Polish women. Volume II, "Plebian Culture, Class, and Politics in the Life of Labor Migrants," discusses questions of class and ethnicity, tracing them back to the cultures of origin and using folktales to probe their social and ethnic meaning.
