Overview

A mosaic of ethnic groups

Reflecting the social and political dynamics in the United States, this edited volume offers an inclusive look at multicultural diversity in the U.S. with extensive coverage of the family life styles, traditions and values of seventeen American ethnic groups.

Providing unique and personal insights, each chapter is written by a contributing author representing a particular ethnic group and is structured in a similar pattern - covering the historical background, key ethnic cultural components, traditional and current ethnic family characteristics, and changes and adaptations to the ethnic family and culture. The book is suitable for undergraduate courses in Sociology of the Family, Sociology of Minority Groups, Social Work with Minority Groups, and Race and Ethnicity.

  • Have a better understanding at the multicultural diversity of families in the United States
