Book Review: "Crossing Cultural Borders: Education for Immigrant Families in America," by Concha Delgado-Gaitan and Henry Trueba.
Owocki, Gretchen; Lohff, Elizabeth A.
Bilingual Research Journal, v19 n2 p337-41 Spr 1995
Reviews an ethnography of the life experiences in home, school, and community of 14 Mexican American immigrant children as they struggle with acculturation processes. Argues that the authors fail to achieve an "ethnography of empowerment" that puts theory into practice and improves the living conditions of its subjects, and that this notion is based on macrocultural ideals.
