Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The monumental Harvard Encyclopedia of American Ethnic Groups is the most authoritative single source available on the history, culture, and distinctive characteristics of ethnic groups in the United States. Dimensions of Ethnicity is designed to make this landmark scholarship available to everyone in a series of handy paperbound student editions. Selections in this series will include outstanding articles that illuminate the social dynamics of a pluralistic nation or masterfully summarize the experience of key groups.

Written by the best-qualified scholars in each field, Dimensions of Ethnicity will reflect the complex interplay between assimilation and pluralism that is a central theme of the American experience.

Synopsis:

The extraordinary proliferation of literature on ethnicity and ethnic groups made possible--and necessary--an effort to take stock. An authoritative, up-to-date synthesis of the current state of knowledge in the field was called for. The Harvard Encyclopedia of American Ethnic Groups, published by the Harvard University Press in 1980, is such a synthesis. It provides entries by leading scholars on the origins, history, and present situation of the more than 100 ethnic groups that make up the population of the United States, and 29 thematic essays on a wide range of ethnic topics. As one reviewer said, the volume is 'a kind of summa ethnica of our time.'
