Sažetak
Beginning in the 1930s and 1940s Louis Adamic, an American author of Slovene origin, began to register the huge impact of the „new immigration, “ the arrivals from the south, south-eastern and eastern Europe to the United States, as a phenomenon of tremendous importance, comparable in its scope and effects to the arrival of early settlers or the braving of the frontier. In his multiple fictional and even more numerous non-fictional works, which are considered here, he attempted to lay out an epic of immigration, where the immigrant was seen as a hero of modern America, born out of industrialization. In his sharp, if not quite scholarly observations, Adamic has shown the human side of virtually every ethnic group in America, and has advocated not only their prompt inclusion and assimilation into American society, but has shrewdly observed how the inclusion of new arrivals and their descendants, second-generation, deeply and irrevocably transforms the American nation, turning it into a nation of nations in the process here designated as transculturation. Adamic was thus a harbinger of 1960s and later multiculturalism. The article looks specifically at the contribution of Croats and Croatian Americans in the processes depicted by Adamic.
