Description

This book describes the transatlantic experience of Austrian and Hungarian migrants from 1870 to 1960. Through socio-economic, demographic, and cultural analyses, the authors recount how newly arrived immigrants struggled to adapt to the new sociocultural mores of America while upholding their own traditions and language. This study breaks new ground by examining migration between the Habsburg Monarchy and North America and return migration to Central Europe, including the study of various ethnic and religious groups.
