Scots in Michigan

By: Alan T. Forrester.

Price: $11.95

Seller ID: 136895

ISBN: 0870136895

Condition: 90 pages, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, illus., maps, paperback, Michigan State University Press


Scots began settling in North America in the earliest colonial days. They were heavily involved in the Great Lakes region's major industries, as these evolved from fur trade to farming and lumbering to industry. From early settlement to the industrial revolution, Scots brought to the state a pioneer spirit and an extraordinary level of education. Though rendered almost invisible both by clustering under the umbrella of the British Commonwealth and by the fact that few Scottish traditions are considered whatsoever foreign, ethnic, or exotic, Scottish influences run deep in Michigan history and ...

Asian Indians in Michigan

By: Arthur W. Helweg.

Price: $11.95

Publisher: Michigan State University Press: c2002

Seller ID: 136216

ISBN: 0870136216

Condition: 72 pages, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, illus., maps, paperback, Michigan State University Press


Since 1970, a growing number of Asian Indians have called Michigan home. Representative of the "new immigration," Asian Indians come from a democratic country, are well-educated, and come from middle- and upper-class families. Unlike older immigrant groups, Asian Indians do not form urban ethnic enclaves or found their own communities to meet the challenges of living in a new society. As Arthur W. Helweg shows, Asian Indians in Michigan contribute to the richness and diversity of Michigan's culture through active participation in local institutions, while maintaining a strong ethnic id...

"Come on, you Wolverines!" Gen. George A. Custer shouted to the mounted Michigan men as they finished forming for the charge on the third day of battle at Gettysburg. Their adversary, Confederate cavalry skirmishers of Gen. Jeb Stuart's command, was advancing on foot over an open field. With drawn sabers, fluttering colors and Custer in front leading them, the Seventh Michigan Cavalry -- in its first significant fight -- thundered forward, every trooper yelling at the top of his voice. The impetuous assault, according to a participant, "was only stopped by [a] stone wall and fence,... View more info

In Hungarians in Michigan, Éva V. Huseby-Darvas examines six distinct migrant streams that contributed to the formation of Michigan's Hungarian communities. From early rural immigrants, who hoped to save enough to return home to a life of ease, to urban, post-Iron Curtain immigrants trying to build new lives in the United States, Hungarians have left their mark on Michigan's history. Although Hungarians settled throughout the state, the locus of the Hungarian community was the village of Delray, now part of the city of Detroit. By linking the development and decline of Delray with other Hu... View more info

Seller ID: 136437

ISBN: 0870136437

Condition: 80 pages, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, photos, bibliography, index, paperback, Michigan State University Press


The South Slavs of Michigan-Slovenes, Croats, Serbs, Macedonians, and Bosnian Muslims-are a microcosm of the immigration waves of southern and eastern Europeans who came to the United States between 1880 and 1924. History has almost forgotten these immigrants, who were instrumental in developing the large urban centers of Michigan and the United States, and who specifically contributed to development of the auto industry and struck in 1913-1914 for better working conditions in the copper mines of the Upper Peninsula. While labor problems were the primary obstacles confronting Michigan's South ... View more info

The history of Latinos in Michigan is one of cultural diversity, institutional formation, and an ongoing search for leadership in the midst of unique, often intractable circumstances. Latinos have shared a vision of the American Dream-made all the more difficult by the contemporary challenge of cultural assimilation. The complexity of their local struggles, moreover, reflects far-reaching developments on the national stage, and suggests the outlines of a common identity. While facing adversity as rural and urban immigrants, exiles, and citizens, Latinos have contributed culturally, economicall... View more info

One of the most vibrant and influential ethnic groups in Michigan, Poles have a long history of migration and settlement in the Great Lakes State. From Michigan's earliest Polish marriage (in 1762) to the most recent post-Cold War migrations, each successive wave of settlement has enriched and enlivened Michigan culture. Yet, Paczki Day and Polish festivals represent a relatively small portion of the Polish experience. Commitments both to reli-gious and ethnic identity, and a belief in the American vision of landowner-ship and success, have combined to create a mainstream ethnic community abun... View more info

Seller ID: 135848

ISBN: 0870135848

Condition: 58 pages, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, Notes, illustrations, bibliography, paperback, Michigan State University Press


The recent influx of Albanian migrants into Michigan is a result of both the nationalist upheavals in the Balkan region as well as the breadth of opportunities that Michigan affords. The diversity of Michigan's people is reflected in the Albanian community itself, as Christians and Muslims strive to maintain religious, ethnic, and linguistic identities in their new communities. Frances Trix explores the ways in which Michigan's Albanian community has forged an unusual cohesiveness and unity, and thus has remained more traditional in its orientation than have large, immigrant Albanian communiti...

Driving the rural roads of Michigan one might suddenly come upon a black buggy driven by a bonneted woman or a bearded Amish man. In 1955 there were fewer than five hundred Amish in Michigan-in 2000 there were more than seven thousand. The Amish, with their unique life-style, are found only in North America where approximately 170,000 live in twenty-four states and one Canadian province. This sensitive and fascinating volume explores the Amish historical background, immigration into Michigan, occupations, marriage patterns, cultural conflicts, community-financed schools, medical practices, and...

Since the earliest days of the British fur trade, Jewish pioneers have made Michigan their home. Judith Levin Cantor's Jews in Michigan captures the struggles and triumphs of Michigan's Jews as they worked to establish farms, businesses and synagogues, sparking commercial and residential development throughout the state, and even into the far reaches of the Upper Peninsula. Cantor celebrates both urban and rural immigrants, who supplied essential goods and services to those in lumbering, mining, and automobile manufacturing. She also deals honestly with questions of anti-Semitism and prejudice... View more info

Even though they are historically one of the smaller immigrant streams, nineteenth-century Dutch migrants and their descendents have made parts of West Michigan their own. The first Dutch in Michigan were religious dissenters whose commitment to Calvinism had long-reaching effects on their communities, even in the face of later waves of radicalized industrial immigrants and the challenges of modern life. From Calvin College to Meijer Thrifty Acres and the Tulip Festival, the Dutch presence has enriched and informed people throughout the state. Larry ten Harmsel skillfully weaves together the s...
