The purpose of this paper is to introduce and discuss the book " Blood of My Blood: The Dilemma of the Italian Americans," by Richard Gambino. Specifically it discusses several important themes in the book in which Gambino attempts to change the publics' perception of Italian-Americans and encourage more empathy with their problems and their culture.
From the Paper:"The book is partly a study of Gambino's own life, growing up in Red Hook, Brooklyn in a "typical" Italian-American family, and partly a study of Italian-Americans as a whole. Gambino speaks of how Italian-Americans tend to cluster together in their own sections of a city, called "Little Italies." Gambino gives us figures and numbers, but more than that, he gives us an intimate look at the family, the culture, and the strong ties to home that each Italian-American carry with them. "At least 85 percent of the total of Italians who immigrated to the United States, and perhaps 90 percent of those who came in the great flood of immigration from 1875 to 1920 were from areas south and east of Rome" (Gambino 3)."
