Harvard encyclopedia of American ethnic groups( Book )

29 editions published between 1980 and 1994 in English and held by 2,605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Informative and entertaining, this volume is an indispensable reference work for home, library, and office. It establishes a foundation for the burgeoning field of ethnic studies; it will satisfy and stimulate the popular interest in ancestry and heritage. It is a guide to the history, culture, and distinctive characteristics of the more than 100 ethnic groups who live in the United States. This is a comprehensive guide to more than 100 American groups with ethnic, religious, cultural, or regional identities. In addition there are almost 30 essays on related issues. For each signed group entry, the entire range of experience is discussed from the group's origins, migration, arrival and settlement, to its economic, social, cultural, religious life, and its experiences with education and politics. Maps and tables are included. This is a standard source, though now somewhat limited, especially for Asian peoples. Recommended for high school collections.

The other Bostonians; poverty and progress in the American metropolis, 1880-1970 by Stephan Thernstrom( Book )

36 editions published between 1973 and 2005 in English and held by 1,182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation The Other Bostonians challenges many myths and assumptions about the development of America. Newspapers and other familiar sources record the lives of only the prominent five percent of the population. Beyond these privileged few lie the millions who are born, live, and die unnoted by the chroniclers of their era. Now, with the assistance of computers and a team of researchers, Stephan Thernstrom has gone to the available records of these people, to the raw and uninterpreted data in old city directories, fading marriage license applications, and abandoned local tax records. He has assembled and analyzed this neglected body of evidence to provide one of the most thorough series of observations ever made on the patterns of migration and social mobility in a changing American community. "Thernstrom has written a superb book. It is the best and most ambitious analysis of social mobility yet to appear and will undoubtedly serves as a model for future studies."--American Historical Review "The best piece of quantitative history yet published. It is destined to be a highly influential book." -New York Times Book Review "This is an important book-indispensably important-for students of American social mobility." -American Journal of Sociology
