French Canadians in the United State: An Anthropological Approach

This study focuses upon the interrelationship between survivance (the French Canadian term for ethnic and national survival) and religion, the debate among French Canadian immigrants and their descendants (Franco-Americans) as to whether militance or moderation was the correcl way to maintain survivance, and consequent struggles between militant Franco-Americans and the Irish hierarchy of the Catholic Church. This study will be the basis for a larger project, "French Canadians in New England: Religion and Militant Survivance, 1870-1930."
