Viewing an American Ethnic Community by Frank A Salamone
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Viewing an American Ethnic Community is a work based on the author's love of his heritage. Salamone, a professor of anthropology, believes that each ethnic community must adapt to the social and cultural circumstances in which it finds itself. Thus, while sharing much with other Italian-American communities, the Italians of Rochester were also different in significant ways because of the history, culture, and society-including other ethnic groups-to which they adapted. This photo-book is a small record of the city of Rochester and its Italian community, showing mainly the happy times in the city and of the community, for the joys always trumped the problems. The author wishes to thank Jesse Gimbel for his professional help with the photos.
