Description

Focusing on the three most significant German immigrant newspapers published in New York, Conolly-Smith (history, Union County College, New Jersey) explores how the images in the periodicals encouraged German immigrants to participate in the emerging forms of popular culture, and thus hastened their identification as Americans rather than Germans. The study is revised from his 1996 doctoral dissertation for Yale University. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)show more
