As fresh in 1991 as when it first published a half-century ago, Boston's Immigrants illuminates the history of a particular city and an important phase of the American experience. Focusing on the life of people from the perspective of the social historian, the book explores a wide range of subjects: peasants society and the cause of European migration, population growth and industrial development, the ideology of progress and Catholic thought, and urban politics and the dynamic of prejudice. A generation of students and scholars has profited from its insights, and general readers have enjoyed its lively style. A new preface by the author reflects upon the book's intellectual origins.

Book Description HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS, United States, 1991. Paperback. Condition: New. Enlarged edition. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Illuminates the history of Boston, focussing on the life of people from the perspective of the social historian. The author explores a range of subjects - peasant society and the causes of European migration, population growth and industrial development, the ideology of progress and Catholic thought, urban politics and the dynamics of prejudice. One feature that stands out is the refutation of the popular notion that the American community, local or national, has been able to accept great contingencies of foreign population without experiencing significant and lasting modifications of its own cultural features.
