Addresses the question of why some minority groups do better in school than others, despite substantial barriers related to their different cultures and languages, prejudice, and unequal access to jobs. An introduction establishes the theoretical framework. Case studies examine the school performance of Hispanic, Sikh, Turkish, Korean, West Indian, and Mexican immigrants, as well as Arican-Americans, Native American, Maori, and Burakumin (Japanese) students. Paper edition (unseen), $18.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
