   A few times—a very few times—in a generation, a work of literary and cultural scholarship, critical analysis, and winning polemic    comes along that we confidently describe as a landmark in the field. For many reasons, Re-Reading Italian Americana qualifies      for the honor. It is unique in its accessibility of presentation without sacrifice of precision and complexity, and tough in its call        for Italian Americans to get involved, stop the cheerleading and sentimentality, and contribute. —Frank Lentricchia
