Description : Italians in Toronto provides an insightful account of how village and regional groups transplanted their communities into the city that is now one of the largest expatriate centres for Italians in the world. The history of Italian migration to Canada is the history of emigration from countless towns and villages in the Old World. John Zucchi traces how, in the New World, immigrants developed a stronger sense of Italian identity at the same time as they were being integrated into a new society.

Description : The padrone were often known to the families of the children or were from the same villages. While some were cruel exploiters who compelled obedience through terror and abuse - a view promoted by a few, well-publicized cases - the lot of most of these children was similar to that of child apprentices and helpers in other trades. Public reactions to the child performers were different in each city and reflected the host society's view of the influx of foreign immigrants in general. Although England, France, and the United States developed legislation in the mid-nineteenth century to deal with children in factories, they did not attempt to regulate children in street trades until later in the century because they saw the work as a form of begging. The battle to get Italian child musicians off the street dragged on for years before legislation and new work opportunities - often as onerous as or worse than street performing - directed the children into new trades.

Description : Undermining Race rewrites the history of race, immigration, and labor in the copper industry in Arizona. The book focuses on the case of Italian immigrants in their relationships with Anglo, Mexican, and Spanish miners (and at times with blacks, Asian Americans, and Native Americans), requiring a reinterpretation of the way race was formed and figured across place and time. Phylis Martinelli argues that the case of Italians in Arizona provides insight into “in between” racial and ethnic categories, demonstrating that the categorizing of Italians varied from camp to camp depending on local conditions—such as management practices in structuring labor markets and workers’ housing, and the choices made by immigrants in forging communities of language and mutual support. Italians—even light-skinned northern Italians—were not considered completely “white” in Arizona at this historical moment, yet neither were they consistently racialized as non-white, and tactics used to control them ranged from micro to macro level violence. To make her argument, Martinelli looks closely at two “white camps” in Globe and Bisbee and at the Mexican camp of Clifton-Morenci. Comparing and contrasting the placement of Italians in these three camps shows how the usual binary system of race relations became complicated, which in turn affected the existing race-based labor hierarchy, especially during strikes. The book provides additional case studies to argue that the biracial stratification system in the United States was in fact triracial at times. According to Martinelli, this system determined the nature of the associations among laborers as well as the way Americans came to construct “whiteness.”

Description : This book encompasses the rich, broad spectrum of adventure that is mountain climbing, in a remarkable selection of first-hand accounts - most never before published - by 40 of the foremost mountaineers of modern times. Heroic Climbs looks at the development of climbing in the great mountainous areas of the world, from the Alps and remote ranges of Europe to the big walls and super ice of North America, from South America and the last great wilderness of Antarctica to the highest challenges in the Himalaya. Each section introduces the history of the region, to put into context the articles that cover many different eras. Here are the pioneering exploits - Charles Houston's vivid memories of Nanda Devi and K2 in the '30s; Bradford Washburn's recollections of meeting the challenge of Alaska's Mt. Lucania in 1937, and Sir Edmund Hillary's memories of "the last lap" for himself and Tenzing on Everest in 1953. Here also are today's climbers' stories - Catherine Destivelle's eleven days and nights spent clinging to a 3,000-ft. granite wall on the west face of the Dru; Paul Piana's and Todd Skinner's near disaster at the top of El Capitan's Salathe Wall; Barry Blanchard's cold fear on the ice of Mt. Temple's north face; Ed Webster's discovery of the dramatic beauty in the sandstone cracks of Utah's Canyonlands; Marc Twight's and Andy Parkin's body-bruising journey into "The House of Pain" on the Aiguille des Pelerins. Rutkiewicz, Venables, Fowler, Burgess, Calhoun Grissom, Habeler, Messner, Scott, Diemberger, Mear and a dozen more, men and women from many different countries, tell of their exhilaration, success, failure and redemption in the mountains in stories representing vastly differentstyles in both climbing and writing. While it may never be possible for climbers to express completely why it is they pit themselves against the heights, this collection of absorbing writing makes a valuable contribution to the reader's understanding and appreciation of the lure of climbing.
