MEDIA REVIEWS
?As a starting place for those seeking to understand the role of material culture in the crafting of Italian-American ethnicity, it has substantial value.?-The Journal of American History
?The Immigration History Research Center (IHRC) contains one of the largest collections of sources devoted to European immigration even though its material is confined to immigrants from southern, eastern, and central Europe (excluding Germany) as well as the Near East during the turn of the century. As a result this guide is more narrowly focused than European Immigration and Ethnicity in the United States and Canada, . ed. By D.L. Brye (1983) or John D. Buenker's Immigration and Ethnicity: A Guide to Information Sources. Wurl and Moody, the IHRC's curator and project director respectively, expand upon the "Ethnic Bibliography Series" and the "Record Survey Guides" begun by IHRC in 1976. This work devotes a chapter to summarizing the archival and library holdings on each of the 23 ethnic groups covered at the Center. Each chapter includes a manuscript collection description, bibliographic essay on monographs, and a listing of newspaper and serials holdings. Foreign-language titles are translated into English. A drawback of this otherwise thorough resource is that the index does not include author-title information from the monographic essays or individual listings of newspapers and serials. Recommended for graduate and research level collections.?-Choice
