Emerging Faces; the Mexican-Americans.
Cabrera, Y. Arturo
According to the author, discussions about Mexican Americans most frequently deal with culture conflict and social pathologies. Here and there, students working toward advanced degrees undertake delimited studies. Trade and governmental publications are infrequent. Views from the Mexican Americans themselves are not heard. It is the author's opinion that, because we are in an era of cultural awareness, there is a demand for publications about Mexican Americans. The author states that his purpose is to "speak on selected issues as a Mexican American, not necessarily interpreting for all, but expressing a particular orientation in response to events" in the hope that this publication will stimulate readers to inquire openly about Mexican Americans. Along with sections on such topics as treatment in the literature, education, health, housing, the political scene, and cultural identity, the document contains 3 appendices, a glossary, a general bibliography, and a bibliography of doctoral dissertations.
