"The essays in this volume reflect the extraordinary, ever changing heterogeneity of American society. They also reveal similarities in the experiences of newcomers striving to fulfill their versions of the American Dream. At the same time the essays illustrate the continuing hold, that ethnic identity has on many descendents of immigrants in spite of the high rate of intermarriage among the preceding generations"--Introduction, page x
