Description


Written by scholars who share an identity with the minority families they write about, this collection of essays offers a detailed description and analysis of the historical and contemporary forces that have shaped the structure and the role of social class and gender dynamics of the four dominant minority groups--African-American, Hispanic, Asian, and Native American--and their sub-populations in the United States. The four dominant minority groups--African American, Hispanic, Asian, and Native American--and their sub-populations in the United States are focused on. The multiracial/multicultural diversity of family patterns and dynamics are considered. The similarities and differences between groups as well as the considerable diversity (in values, beliefs, and cultural practices) the groups represent are emphasized. Well-balanced treatment of the role of social class and gender as they bear on the behavior and attitudes of family members of minority groups is provided.
