Mexican-Americans of South Texas.
Madsen, William
The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health sponsored and financed the Hidalgo Project on Differential Culture Change and Mental Health during the 4-year period from 1957 to 1961; this document is an abbreviated report of that study of Mexican-American culture in Hidalgo County, Texas. Acculturation levels of various classes of the Mexican-American population are analyzed. Family structure and its influences, the conflict between Protestant and Catholic religions, and the conflict between medical technology and folk cures and superstitions are illustrated by examples from individual case histories.
