Imagining Italians, The Clash of Romance and Race in American Perceptions

Explores changes in American attitudes toward Italy and Italians during a crucial period of U.S. immigration history. 

Integrating history, literary criticism, and cultural studies, Imagining Italians vividly tells the story of two voyages across the Atlantic: America's cultural pilgrimage to Italy and the Italian "racial odyssey" in America. It examines how American representations of Italy, Italians, and Italian Americans engaged with national debates over immigration, race, and national identity during the period 1880-1910.
