1 - 2 weeks availability
In Immigrants on the Hill, Gary Mormino traces the Hill's evolution from its roots in Lombardy and Sicily to contemporary times, focusing upon 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.
Gary Ross Mormino is Duckwall Professor of History at the University of South Florida. He is the author of numerous books, including The Immigrant World of Ybor City: Italians and Their Latin Neighbors.
