Health in the Mexican-American Culture, A Community Study.
Clark, Margaret
The Spanish-speaking people of San Jose, California, are dealt with in this book, which resulted from a field study conducted in 1954-55. The book describes the lives of these people in terms of such factors as their families and friends, jobs, houses, religion, and community life. Some conflicts in the relationships between Mexican Americans in a California community, Sal si Puedes, and the English-speaking medical personnel with whom they have had contact are also described. Following a discussion of the social, economic, religious, and folkloric characteristics that affect problems of health and illness in a low-income Mexican American community, recommendations on changing medical beliefs and practices are included. Also included is a 99-item glossary of Spanish words used in the text of the book. (NQ)
