About this Item

Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine--. 2nd Printing. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A celebration of the history and people of the Hill, the much-acclaimed Italian neighborhood of St. Louis. Based on extensive oral histories, Mormino illustrates Italian-American life from the parish's view, not the archbishop's; from the workers' vantage point, not the owners'; from the bootleggers' cellar, not the courthouse. A fascinating history. 289 pages including index. B&W photos. Dust jacket has very, very light edge wear most evident along top at spine. Great copy. Bookseller Inventory # 002971

About this title

Synopsis:

In Immigrants on the Hill, Gary Mormino traces the Hill’s evolution from its roots in Lombardy and Sicily to contemporary times, focusing on 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.

About the Author:
