Minority Families in the United States: A Multicultural Perspective

For courses in Sociology of the Family, Minority Families, Family Development, and Ethnic Families. 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.
