Ethnicity and nationality in Antebellum America.
|Responsibility:||Dale T. Knobel.|
This book is a provocative approach to ethnicity and national identity in the United States before the Civil War. By careful study of how Irish immigrants were described and talked about in the common everyday language of the period, it shows how ethnic stereotypes were formed and how they shaped popular attitudes.
