The term 'arrangiarsi' is normally defined as 'making do' or 'getting by'. This book marks the first attempt to provide a comprehensive treatment of the Italian presence in Canada, and to capture the experience of the Italian immigrants who helped to build this country. Through historical, literary, and artistic approaches, this collection of essays explores how these immigrants saw and were seen: what were their ambitions, their setbacks, and their strategies for adapting to the new land. In addition to the editors, contributors include: the late Robert Harney, Bruno Ramirez, Gabriele Scardellato, Laurier Lacroix, Paul-Andre Linteau, Susan Iannucci, Nicoletta Serio, and William Boelhower.
