Review by Choice Review

Hoerder's comprehensive bibliography of newspapers and periodicals provides basic source material about working class North European ethnic groups in the US. There are separate sections for Scandinavians, Danes, Swedes, Norwegians, Finns, and Icelanders. Each section begins with a short introduction discussing the specific immigrant group. The annotations are both well written and informative. Entries are arranged alphabetically and contain information about the circulation, frequency, language, dates of publication, depository locations, and political leanings of the periodicals. There are a useful section of historical background about labor and immigration in North America, a table of contents, a list of depositories, a Nordic title index, and a list of surveys and essays about immigration and labor. This work fills an important gap in the reference literature and can be used with the State Historical Society of Wisconsin's Labor Papers on Microfilm; A Combined List (1965). It will be of interest to scholars in history, labor, and ethnicity. Recommended for undergraduate and graduate collections as well as special collections.-M. Margolis, Herbert H.
