Peter C. Moskos
Greek Americans: Struggle and Success (3rd ed.)
(Transaction Publishers, 2013)
This account of Greek Americans blends sociological insight with historical detail, as the authors trace the Greek-American experience from the wave of mass immigration in the early 1900s to today. Many Greeks came to America without knowing the language and without education, yet managed to raise solid families in the new country while shouldering responsibilities for those in the old. Included in this completely revised edition is an introduction by Michael Dukakis and chapters relating to the early struggles of Greeks in America, the Greek Orthodox Church, success in America, and the survival and expansion of Greek identity despite intermarriage. Peter Moskos (Assoc. Prof., John Jay) serves on the doctoral faculty in sociology.
