Mexican-Americans in the Southwest by Ernesto Galarza( Book )

9 editions published between 1969 and 1970 in English and Spanish and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With findings as presented in this 1969 book, a 2-year field study conducted by a 3-member team analyzed the economic, cultural, political, and educational conditions of Mexican Americans in the Southwest (California, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Texas) with some reference to braceros and the situation in Mexico. An overview of 8 geographic Mexican American groupings leads into a discussion of such topics as mobility, urbanization, the culture of poverty, educational disadvantagement, community infrastructure, and communication. Divisions within the minority group, situations creating cultural and political immobility, and problems in the administration of welfare programs are described and used as a backdrop for predictions that the Mexican American family will continue to need outside help and that the cost of social assistance will rise. A 23-point summary and an appendix containing 22 statistical tables on demography, education, and employment conclude the book. (Bo)

The movement of Spanish youth from rural to urban settings by Donald N Barrett( Book )

3 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The analysis deals with--demographic, historical, and cultural background factors, and the housing, family life, and educational and economic participation of spanish surname, non-puerto rican people in five southwestern states. Conclusions are based on an examination of existing literature, a survey of expert opinion, field checks of selected aspects, and a demographic investigation. There are over 3.5 million spanish-speaking people in the united states. Since 1940 they have changed from a predominantly rural population to an overwhelmingly urban group, to a far greater extent than other white and nonwhite groups. They exhibit distinctive cultural traits that encourage residential and social segregation. Over half of them are under 20 years old. Evidence shows that--the housing of spaniards is much poorer than that of other white and nonwhite groups, yet spaniards pay higher rent for units of comparable value, the rates of fertility, morbidity, mortality, and broken families among spaniards are high, educational achievement is lower than for other white or nonwhite, with 25 to 50 percent of the spaniards having 4 years or less of formal education, income is low, and unemployment is high, and many spanish-speaking people are migrant laborers, which presupposes little education, child labor, and poor family conditions for youth. Recommendations to improve the situation of spanish youth include better opportunities to learn english in schools, effective leadership that can overcome negative community and school attitudes toward a lower-class, seemingly foreign ethnic groups, better vocational counseling, apprenticeship, and job training, prevention of employment discrimination, better enforcement of housing, slum, and sanitation laws of all cities, and greater efforts to reduce the dropout rates by providing more motivation for education

The Spanish Speaking People in the United States by Julian Samora( Book )

1 edition published in 1962 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A pilot study traced the history and background of spanish speaking people in the united states and discussed their present position in american society in terms of education, housing, employment, administration of justice, voting, public accommodations, and health. Discrimination and the deprivation of civil rights were emphasized. Sources for study were books, articles, U.S. census reports, census tract data, questionnaires, and interviews. According to the 1960 census, 4,320,724 spanish speaking people lived in the united states. Of the total, 3,465,000 lived in arizona, california, colorado, new mexico, and texas. In the 1950's their history was different from other immigrant groups, because spanish americans and puerto ricans were conquered people upon whom the culture of the conquerors was superimposed. Their tradition of passive subservience to authority was the basic difficulty in their assimilation to american society. Factors complicating the assimilation process were language difficulties, skin color, health differences, and low socioeconomic status. Their education, housing, employment, health, income, and occupation conditions were poorer than other nonwhites and much poorer than the whites. Based on the findings in the study, recommendations were made for the following--(1) a national agency to help spanish speaking people solve their problems, (2) more field workers for spanish speaking local organizations, (3) noncompetitive scholarships at the junior and senior high school levels, (4) an attack on the minority problem through programs combatting prejudice, discrimination, and exploitation, (5) more detailed research studies covering a larger number of spanish speaking people in every aspect of their lives, and (6) a center for research to coordinate knowledge and programs on minority groups
