From an Amazon reviewer:
- Many groups had hatreds & prejudices brought from home. For example, Italians generally did not come to America as Italians. They saw themselves as Calabrians or Sardinians or Sicilians, whatever. Italians from the same region or town would live on the same street in America. In this case, there was a lot of violence in Brooklyn between one region from Italy & another. Hatered of former countrymen was common.
