Factors in and problems of assimilation are discussed from the viewpoint of American racial discrimination and of Chinese ethnocentrism. Results of a questionnaire survey of the attitudes of Chinese youth are tabulated and analyzed from the sociocultural perspective. A lengthy bibliography follows each section of the report. (WI)
