Bibliographic Index of American Ethnic Groups, Volume I [And] Volume II.
Sowell, Thomas
This index presents page references to topics on American ethnic groups in books, journals, and miscellaneous publications on ethnicity in America. The main purpose of the index is to enable the user to locate specific topics with relation to a particular ethnic group. The index lists 14 main subjects, comprised of topics and nine ethnic groups. The topics are discrimination, immigration, intelligence, slavery, and free persons of color. The ethnic groups are black Americans, Chinese Americans, Irish Americans, Italian Americans, Japanese Americans, Jewish Americans, Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, and West Indians. Under these main subjects are listed dozens of categories and subcategories that include background, identity, agriculture, business, charity, education, family, occupation, population, progress, housing, and socioeconomic class. The author reports that the choice of which ethnic groups to include and which ones to exclude was based on judgments about the quantity and quality of available literature on each of the groups. He relates also that the type of literature preferred for the index was empirically based, factual, and analytical. (Author/DB)
