Summary

Intended to help readers develop an appreciation of the contributions of Franco-Americans to the cultural heritage of the United States, this book, the fourth of six volumes, presents 15 chapters representing many perspectives--from the historical to the sociological--illustrating the thinking and feelings of those in the forefront of Franco-American studies. This volume focuses on Franco-Americans in New England. The following readings are presented: "New England French Culture" (Gerard J.

Sorrell); "U. S. Journal--Biddefort, Maine: Ou se trouve la plage?" (Calvin Trillin); "Ethnic Stratification in the Community" (Elin Anderson); "Race, Ethnicity and the Achievement Syndrome" (Bernard C. Rosen); "Living Space and the Advancement of the Generations" (W. Lloyd Warner, J. O. Low, Paul S. Lunt, and Leo Srole); "The Socio-Economic Status of the French-Canadians in the United States" (Leon F. Bouvier); "A Genealogical Approach to the Study of French-Canadian Fertility 1650-1950" (Leon F. Bouvier); "Language Usage in the United States: July, 1975" (U. S. Bureau of the Census); "Social and Economic Profile of French and English Mother-Tongue Persons: Maine, 1970" (Madeleine Giguere); "French-Canadian Settlement in Vermont Prior to the Civil War" (Ralph D. Vicero), and "Sentinelle Affair (1924-1929): Religious and Militant 'Survivance' in Woonsocket, Rhode Island" (Richard S. Sorrell).
