Immigrant Communities & Ethnic Minorities
in the United States & Canada

ISSN 0749-5951
Set ISBN-13: 978-0-404-19399-7

"These publications demonstrate the strategic importance of community studies in understanding the complex ethnic mosaic of human interaction and social organization in the United States and Canada. The series should prove invaluable to a wide range of students and scholars."
—Professor Gideon Sjoberg, Dept. of Sociology, University of Texas at Austin

"This collection...brings to light many fine studies which otherwise would only be known to the narrow specialist. The existence itself of such a collection promotes an interest in, and study of, immigrant and ethnic minorities and, as such, points up the key social historical and social features of American and Canadian life, the creation of a new society through the integration of diversity."
—Professor Mel Firestone, Dept. of Anthropology, Arizona State University-Tempe

"Represents a fascinating scholarly endeavor to describe and analyze the adaption of ethnic minority cultures within the context of a variety of North American cities...Composed largely of newly revised, previously unpublished dissertations, the series should prove invaluable to anthropologists, sociologists, historians, and indeed to all scholars concerned with the dynamics of culture contact and cultural pluralism. Clearly this collection is a potential gold mine of highly important though fugitive data. Researchers will owe AMS Press a profound debt of gratitude for many years to come."
—John Liberty, Social Science Reference Librarian, California State University-Sacramento
