Ethnic and Racial Minorities in North America: A Selected Bibliography of the Geographical Literature.
Jakle, John A.
Forty-six ethnic and/or racial minorities are represented in this bibliography on the geographical literature of ethnic and racial minorities in North America. The bibliography is an initial step toward recognition of what geographers and other spatially-oriented social scientists and planners have discovered about the place experience of ethnic and racial minorities in North America. It is organized according to minority groups on the assumption that distinctive cultures precipitate distinctive place experiences. Only where a large number of minority groups have been treated for a specific place are references organized according to geographical location (i.e. Southern White, Canada, U.S. General, U.S. Northeast, U.S. Southeast and U.S. West.) Among the minority groups included are the more numerous Afro-Americans, Amerindians, Chinese, Japanese, Italians, and Puerto Ricans, and also, less known gorups such as the Basque, Dutch, Finnish, Gypsy, Swiss, Mormon, and Lebanese.
