Status Mobility Patterns Among Middle-Class Mexican Americans in Texas: A Theoretical Orientation.
Teske, Raymond, Jr.; Nelson, Bardin H.
In an attempt to analyze what social characteristics may account for the Mexican American's "apparent slow rate" of both upward mobility and assimilation into the dominant American culture, this paper postulates a conceptual model of Mexican American mobility patterns that is based on theories of socialization, the marginal man, acculturation, and assimilation. One figure and 40 footnotes are included. Related documents are ED 032 157 and ED 042 556. (BO)
