Goodman, Mary Ellen; And Others
Rice University Studies, v57 n3 Summer 1971
An ethnographic study of Mexican Americans living in Houston is presented in this monograph. The Mexican American population is studied in regard to such factors as population distribution, culture, socioeconomic background, education, employment, social activities, and environment. The barrio environment is discussed in terms of its setting, people, and the life-style therein. Life in an urban barrio is also described from a child's viewpoint. Additionally, the attitudes and organizations of the Mexican American traditionalists, middle class, and students of high school and college age are discussed. Sketches resulting from field interviews are used throughout the monograph. Ten tables and 5 graphs containing demographic data are appended, as is a 41-item bibliography. (NQ)
