This is a book that dares to examine the question of traditional immigrant ethnic values in America. The question of enculturation of ethnic groups remains a lively subject to which Dr. Franco provides important insights. There are several compelling aspects in this book. By far, the most interesting insights are found in the chapter of case studies. The cases presented here give substance to the efforts of students who strive, through meritocracy, to achieve professional middle-class status in the United States. Above all, this book makes clear that further work in this field is needed as a follow-up to this study. The evolution of immigrants in our country is best studied in the combination of qualitative and quantitative examinations such as this. -- Rostyslaw Robak, Rostyslaw Robak, Professor/Chair, Psychology/Mental Health Counseling, Pace University
How relevant is ethnicity and the "weight of tradition" for the careers of college students? The author explores that question through the story of Italian-American educational and social mobility. The findings are sociologically rich in qualitative and quantitative detail. -- William Kornblum, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, Graduate Center, CUNY
