Summary "From 1840 to 1930, about 900,000 Quebecers left their homeland and moved to the United States. By the early 1900s, many industrial cities in New England had thriving French-Canadian communities. In those "cultural ghettos," organized around the parish church and French schools, first-generation immigrants tried to recreate their lost homeland. Eking out a living on the margins of American society, they saw themselves as American French-Canadians." "In this work based on 30 years of research and reflection, Yves Roby examines the genesis and evolution of the discourses held by the French-Canadian immigrants of New England and their descendants, the Franco-Americans. Roby's penetrating analysis sheds new light on the history of the Franco-Americans and, at the same time, raises questions about the integration into Canadian society of its ethnocultural groups and the future of French-speaking communities everywhere in North America."--Jacket.
