Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Alba (sociology, SUNY-Albany), lays to rest the idea that ethnicity persists to any meaningful extent among white ethnics in contemporary America. Drawing upon the results of an exhaustive survey undertaken in the Capital Region of New York State (Albany, Troy, etc.), Alba emphasizes that ethnicity is a sometime thing even among a minority of white European ethnics, including the "New Immigrants" from Italy, Greece, etc. This slackening of ethnicity affects residential patterns, language maintenance, folkways and foodways, etc. Alba blames intermarriage across ethnic lines for the dilution of ethnic impulses and sees the emergence of a new inter-European white ethnic group, which stresses commonality of generalized past experiences rather than particular national or regional traits. Alba's work makes for difficult reading and is at times exasperatingly repetitious, but it is essential for the student of the ethnic experience.
