Synopses & Reviews
This case study is appropriate for courses in Anthropology, Education, Chicano Studies, Ethnic Studies, and Urban Studies. Vigil's impressive case study explores the real life situations of both suburban and urban Mexican American high school students in 1974 and 1988. The author approaches the study qualitatively so the reader can better understand his subjects, but he also uses a quantitative approach for essential background information.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 147-156) and index.
