Overview

Italians were the largest group of immigrants to the United States at the turn of the twentieth century, and hundreds of thousands led and participated in some of the period's most volatile labor strikes. Jennifer Guglielmo brings to life the Italian working-class women of New York and New Jersey who helped shape the vibrant radical political culture that expanded into the emerging industrial union movement. Tracing two generations of women who worked in the needle and textile trades, she explores the ways immigrant women and their American-born daughters drew on Italian traditions of protest to form new urban female networks of everyday resistance and political activism. She also shows how their commitment to revolutionary and transnational social movements diminished as they became white working-class Americans.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Traces the evolution of radical organization from first generation immigrants, who brought local organizing and direct action tactics from Italy to the United States, to their children, who would embrace labor reformism."--New York History

"Guglielmo provides a fresh look at the connections among labor militancy, migration, gender, and race. Living in the Revolution effectively challenges the traditional narrative of early twentieth-century activism among Italian American women and therefore should be of great interest to labor historians."--Labor

"Living the Revolution is a major achievement . . . . Capacious, humanistic, and provocative."--Voices in Italian Americana

"Meticulously researched and with a remarkable command of the bilingual archives."--Women's Review of Books

"Meticulously researched and with a remarkable command of the bilingual archives."--Women's Review of Books

"Guglielmo offers new insight to labor and gender scholars who seek fresh information on the anarchist and socialist movement among female workers."--The History Teacher

"[This] well-written study . . . makes a significant contribution to our understanding of a key period of radical activity in the United States. . . . A pathbreaking work that will hopefully inspire others to study the many overlooked dimensions of this c

"A critically important addition to the field. The author is expansively original in her understanding of the subject and the accomplished integrative analysis of primary and secondary research is of the first order. . . . This work is sure to become one of the fundamental historiographical classics of our era. Guglielmo and the University of North Carolina Press must also be commended for the inclusion of so many phenomenal photographs . . . which give the nuanced narrative even more profound strength."--Labour/Le Travail

"Living the Revolution is a brilliantly argued, exhaustively researched, and beautifully written analysis. . . . The only quarrel I have with this book is that the title does not do justice to the scope and breadth of this groundbreaking narrative

"This book is destined to change the way historians think about Italian American working-class women. . . . A groundbreaking, compelling, and inspiring narrative that reveals a rich history of female resistance and radicalism. . . . [An] immensely importa

"Jennifer Guglielmo offers a commanding corrective to earlier images of immigrant women as weak pawns in a larger scheme of American immigrant history with this exacting study."--Fra Noi

"An important work about the intertwining of class, ethnicity, and gender as well as race. . . . Rich in biographical details of Italian women culled from a treasure trove of oral history, memoirs, and fascinating material from archives on both sides of t

"Brilliantly researched. . . . [A] powerful narrative. . . . Beautifully edited, sourced, and indexed. An extraordinary book. . . . Essential. Recommended for all levels/libraries."--Choice
