 Eh,Paesan!: Being Italian in Toronto
With the present publication, Nicholas De Maria Harney adds his name to the growing list of scholars studying the phenomenon of Italian-Canadian ethnicity within the Canadian cultural matrix and thereby joins the ranks of established figures such as Robert Harney, Franca Iacovetta, Franc Sturino, Clifford Jensen, and John Zucchi, to name a few.
