Oriental-Americans: An Annotated Bibliography. ERIC-IRCD Urban Disadvantaged Series, Number 26.
This bibliography is another in a continuing series of ERIC/IRCD publications intended to retrieve references to recent journal articles, addresses, books, and project reports focusing on the social, political and educational development of various United States minority groups. Major emphasis is given to material, published since 1960, regarding Japanese-Americans and Chinese-Americans since the bulk of the literature on Orientals deals with these two groups. The bibliography's organization is similar to the general pattern of the literature: first, articles about social, economic and educational development , with educational development being most recently emphasized. With respect to geographical location, literature initially focuses on Orientals living in their homelands, and later turns to Oriental and American comparisons, and lastly to Orientals living in the United States. Because of the general scarcity of recent literature on this subgroup, some dissertations are included in this bibliography. An effort has been made to provide detailed annotation and where possible, complete abstracts and alternative sources. ED numbers following some items indicate that the reference is also available from the ERIC system. (Author/JM)
