Any agenda for family research in the 1990s must take seriously a contextual approach to the study of family relationships. The editors and contributors to this volume believe that the richness in family studies over the next decade will come from considering the diversity of family forms -- different ethnic groups and cultures, different stages of family life, as well as different historical cohorts.

Second generation south Asians: Dating, mating and becoming American by Rifat Anjum Salam( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second generation assimilation experience reflects changing assumptions about what it means to be American. This study examines the ways in which one second generation group "becomes American" by analyzing their family experiences, dating and marriage choices and the ways in which they negotiate between the culture of their immigrant parents and mainstream expectations around individualism, autonomy and the navigation of mainstream gender norms. This dissertation focused on the experience of second generation South Asian Americans, and asked how they reconcile "American" ideas and norms around autonomy and egalitarianism with the "traditional" expectations of their families and ethnic communities? Using data from in-depth interviews of 60 male and female respondents between the ages of 21-40 and a life course approach, this study examined the adaptation and assimilation processes experienced by these second generation subjects, part of a largely middle and upper middle class cohort that is often described as the "children of 1965."
