Description

The author tells the story of the Jewish and Italian women who came to inhabit New York's Lower East Side at the turn of the century - a period of massive migration.  Immigrant Women in the Land of Dollars looks at two generations -- mothers born in the old world, and daughters born in the new -- and makes extensive use of oral histories.  It purports to present a tale of individual and cultural metamorphosis through Americanization.
