All Roads Lead to Jackson
Author: Milina Jovanović
Milina offers a unique compilation of individual and family immigration stories that include enormous contributions to the development of California and significant community involvement. In this version of people’s history, she chronicles how Serbian Americans have strengthened community, region, state, and country through the endeavors and struggles of 150 years. This book also focuses on women’s contributions that are too often overlooked. Ms. Jovanović’s study reveals that Jackson not only remains an original and symbolic home to Serbian Americans and Serbian Orthodox religion, but also an oasis where the Serbian community has preserved its positive reputation and social influence.
"Here is a book that gives us an accurate and engaging picture of the Serbs, an intelligent, tolerant, and democratic people. Here we can see how Serbian-Americans helped lead the way in the development of a viable and valuable society in California from Gold Rush days to modern times." - Michael Parenti, author of "The Face of Imperialism", "To Kill a Nation: The Attack on Yugoslavia" and many other books
"Every ethnic group in America deserves as fine a study as this about its contributions to the United States, but none more so than Serbian-Americans, whose achievements until this book have remained largely in the shadow of obscurity and discrimination resulting from a one-sided view of the Balkan wars of the 1990s." - Joe Lauria, journalist and author of "Political Odyssey"
