Fordham University Press

Arno Press has published an impressive and valuable array of materials on Italian Americans in the United States with its thirty-nine-volume series, The Italian American Experience. The series is as diverse as the community it depicts. In view of the current interest in women's history and women's roles, it is unfortunate that the Arno series contains few works dealing with women. Not one of the thirty-nine volumes is devoted exclusively to women. Despite this neglect, the careful reader can uncover a wealth of information on Italian women scattered throughout the Arno series. Most Italian women who worked outside the home were blue collar or industrial workers. Some of the most useful insights about Italian women are those of novelists. While women do not figure prominently in many academic studies in the Arno series, they are very prominent in virtually every novel, indicating their central importance in the “real,” world.
