On Persecution , Identity & Activism is a definitive work on the many trials and tribulations that Italian-Americans have suffered over the past 120 years. While other books have focused on specific areas of anti-Italianism, Cristogianni’s work encompasses the great bulk of persecution that existed in the United States, through the use of a historical timeline. The book also shows the reader how the Italian-American identity has evolved through the years. Modern activism is addressed as well, especially the ongoing anti-defamation campaign and the Columbus Day controversy. Due to the striking similarities between Italian immigrants of the past and immigrants of the present, On Persecution, Identity & Activism is truly a must read for anyone wishing to better understand the vex-ing immigration questions of our own time.
