Library Journal
This two-volume reference work examines 101 different ethnic groups in the United States, ranging from migrant groups to certain distinct religions. Selection was based on population size or the unique importance of the group. Generally ten to 20 pages long, the signed original articles by recognized scholars contain a general history of the group, a description of the area or country of origin, and an examination of a variety of different aspects of the group's experience in the United States. The entries are excellent summary articles that also include handbook-type information such as addresses of organizations and a few additional sources for consultation. This set is similar in scope and quality to the Harvard Encyclopedia of American Ethnic Groups (1980), though it is more up-to-date. Of value to public, some larger school, and academic libraries.-Mark L. Grover, Brigham Young Univ., Provo, Utah
