Posadas, Barbara M.
The New Americans Series is designed for high school and general readers who want to know more about immigrant groups. This volume provides an in-depth look at Filipino Americans, who have been projected to be the largest group of Asian Americans by the year 2000. The emphasis is on those who arrived in the United States after 1965. The chapters are: (1) "The Philippines"; (2) "Filipinos in the United States before 1965"; (3) "U.S. Law and Filipino Immigration"; (4) "Filipino Values and Customs in an American Setting"; (5) Creating and Transforming Ethnic and Cultural Identity"; (6) "Economic and Political Power"; (7) "Contemporary Issues among Filipino Americans"; (8) "The Future of Filipino Immigration"; and (9) "Filipino American Identity as American Identity." Two appendixes discuss Filipinos in the U.S. Census and notable Filipino Americans. (Contains 1 map, 5 tables, and 417 references.) (SLD)
