about

This bibliography is a comprehensive collection of the non-English-language labor and radical periodical publications of the United States and Canada, written for and by immigrants. It is intended to supplement existing studies of the role of individual ethnic groups in the North American working classes, by using a broad comparative approach that takes into account the cultures of origin, migration processes, and specific forms of acculturation in the United States and Canada. It represents the collective efforts of thirty scholars from many cultures, with widely varied experiences, styles of annotation, and scholarly traditions, and includes detailed annotations of all bibliographic entries, as well as title, place, and chronological indexes.

Editorial Reviews

?Hoerder's comprehensive bibliography of newspapers and periodicals provides basic source material about working class North European ethnic groups in the US. There are separate sections for Scandinavians, Danes, Swedes, Norwegians, Finns, and Icelanders. Each section begins with a short introduction discussing the specific immigrant group. The annotations are both well written and informative. Entries are arranged alphabetically and contain information about the circulation, frequency, language, dates of publication, depository locations, and political leanings of the periodicals. There are a useful section of historical background about labor and immigration in North America, a table of contents, a list of depositories, a Nordic title index, and a list of surveys and essays about immigration and labor. This work fills an important gap in the reference literature ... It will be of interest to scholars in history, labor, and ethnicity. Recommended for undergraduate and graduate collections as well as special collections.?-Choice
