The Humble and the Heroic: Wartime Italian Americans  

This highly acclaimed book addresses two key questions that pertains to all Americans: 1) Was an extra measure of loyalty and patriotism required of Italian immigrants because the country of their birth was a declared enemy of their adopted country; and 2) Does the World War II experience of Italian Americans offer meaningful insights as to how we should treat other immigrant groups in future conflicts?

Cambria Press Publication 
A Sicilian in East Harlem 

Sicilia Parra praises this book because through it, “we relive an important moment of Sicilian immigration that must be known.” This book shatters commonly held perceptions of Sicilians in New York. It will stand forever as perhaps the only window into a past which is vanishing from our history.
