McCubbin, Hamilton I., Ed.; Thompson, Elizabeth A., Ed.; Thompson, Anne I., Ed.; Futrell, Jo A., Ed.
This book addresses issues facing racial and ethnic minority families. These chapters grew out of a conference at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, that focused on the strengths and resources of minority families.
