Latinos, Poverty, and the Underclass: A New Agenda for Research.
Massey, Douglas S.
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v15 n4 p449-75 Nov 1993
The underclass model used to describe the situation of inner-city Blacks cannot legitimately be employed to understand the social and economic status of Hispanic Americans. A comprehensive theory of Hispanic poverty must consider diversity of Spanish-origin groups; race; residential segregation; immigration; and role of the Spanish language. Contains 116 references.
