The profusion of pictures, from the famous Lewis Hine to the most obscure of family albums, will strike a deep chord in almost any American of Italian family. The numerous text excerpts, ranging from Philip Mazzei to Mario Puzo, were chosen for their attempts to illuminate the Italian American experience, and for male Italian Americans, they do rather well. However, not a single text comes from a woman, or is about one. Geraldine Ferraro and Eleanor Cutri Smeal are mentioned in but one sentence. The pictures, of course, show lots of anonymous women in the fields, in kitchens, etc. There is a graceful introduction by A. Bartlett Giamatti. GraceAnne A. DeCandido, Library Journal
