In Immigrants on the Hill, Gary Mormino traces the Hill's evolution from its roots in Lombardy and Sicily to contemporary times, focusing upon those institutions that have sustained and nurtured the community. He reveals how, in work, play, religion, politics, and even bootlegging, Hill Italian-Americans have consistently encouraged ethnic pride, working-class solidarity, and family honor. His study, now with a new preface, shows why this ethnic enclave has garnered national attention.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Gary Mormino's comprehensive, well-documented, and well-written analysis offers a sound investigation of an ethnic neighborhood that has withstood the test of time. It is an excellent example of the breadth of current historical scholarship on immigrant and ethnic groups."--Western Historical Quarterly


"Mormino has made a major contribution to the literature on urban and ethnic vitality."--History


"This is fine history. Mormino writes with a flair and style that give even exclusively analytical passages a literary quality."--Journal of American Ethnic History


"Mormino has written a well-crafted, balanced, and entertaining book that scholars and the general public alike can read with profit and enjoyment."--Journal of American History


"Immigrants on the Hill establishes an example of well documented in-depth research. Not many books can claim to accomplish as much."--Reviews in American History


"To the shelf of studies of Italian-American communities Gary Mormino has contributed this excellent history of a St. Louis neighborhood (once `Dago Hill'). Such studies tend to have an elegiac quality, commemorating communities that have disappeared; Immigrants on the Hill, to the contrary, sounds a triumphal note. The Hill lives!"--Journal of Southern History
