More than at any time since the 1920's the issues of immigration and ethnicity have become central to discussions of American society and identity. "Becoming American, Becoming Ethnic" addresses this contemporary debate, bringing together essays written over the past eighteen years by college students exploring their ethnic roots from the experiences of their forbears to the place of ethnicity in their lives. The students range from descendants of Europeans whose families immigrated several generations ago to Asian and Latin American immigrants of more recent decades to African-Americans and Hispanics some have more than one ethnic heritage to grapple with, while others have migrated from one place to another within the United States. Together their voices create a dialogue about the interplay of ethnic traditions and values with American culture. These are moving personal reflections on the continuities and changes in the ethnic experience in the United States and on the evolving meaning of ethnicity over time and across generations. Despite vocal concerns in recent years about ethnic divisiveness, these student writings show how much many young Americans share even in their differences. Author note: Thomas Dublin, Professor of History at the State University of New York at Binghamton, has taught courses on immigration and ethnicity for nearly 20 years. He has published several books, most recently "Immigrant Voices: New Lives in America, 1773-1986" and "Transforming Women's Work: New England Lives in the Industrial Revolution".
