Family Ethnicity
Strength in Diversity

Second Edition
Edited by:

April 1999 | 416 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Family ethnicity is the sum total of our ancestry and cultural dimensions: how families collectively identify the core of their beings. Our ethnicity is fundamental to the all-encompassing core of our identity. Families differentiate themselves from other groups and form linkages with families that assume similar identifications and provide reference groups for their members. Ethnicity involves the unique family customs, proverbs, and stories that are passed on for generations. Almost all of us are from families that are part of ethnicities. This new edition provides extensive information about the various cultural elements that different family groups have drawn on in order to exist in the United States today. In each chapter, the authors are intimately familiar with the particular groups, by way of membership in the group or intensive study of the group. The eight sections of the book cover Native American Indians, Native Hawaiian, Mexican American and Spanish, African American, Muslim American, and Asian American families.
