The challenge of the American dream: the Chinese in the United States by Francis L. K Hsu( Book )

12 editions published between 1971 and 1997 in English and Chinese and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the situation of the Chinese in the United States in terms of contact and conflict between two vastly different ways of life: how Chinese and white Americans conduct themselves under the circumstances; the effect of such contact and conflict on the behavior patterns of the individual; and, what future course Chinese-Americans and White Americans should pursue in mutual accommodation for a brighter and happier America of tomorrow. The research that went into this book is part of a larger continuing study from 1949 to 1970 under the auspices of the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research. At its inception, the author was also aided by a grant from the Social Science Research Council. For better understanding, research on other minority groups are also used. The author first visited Hawaii and did research among Hawaiian-Chinese in 1949-1950. He returned in 1969. During the two decades between these visits, he traveled quite extensively in different parts of the United States and Canada and developed an acquaintance with the Chinese in many cities including New York, San Francisco, Boston, Atlanta, Los Angeles.

Kinship and culture by Francis L. K Hsu( Book )

19 editions published between 1971 and 2017 in English and held by 680 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At one time Francis L.K. Hsu put forth a hypothesis on kinship that proposed a functional relationship between particular kinship systems and behavior patterns in particular cultural contexts. The controversy provoked among cultural anthropologists by this hypothesis is reflected in this book, which points the way toward more fruitful investigations of kinship in cultural and psychological anthropology.Hsu's hypothesis offers an alternative to the study of kinship as a mathematical game and to the treatment of fragmentary aspects of child-rearing practices as major causal factors in culture. Considering the kinship system as the psychological factory of culture, Hsu's aim is to discover the crucial forces in each system that shape the interpersonal orientation of the individual, which forms the individual's basis for adequate functioning as a member of his society and which, in turn, provides his culture with a basis for continuity and change. His central hypothesis is that the attributes of the dominant dyads in a given kinship system (such as father-son or mother-daughter) tend to determine the attitudes and action patterns that the individual in such a system develops toward other relationships in that system as well as toward his relationships outside of it.The topics are varied, ranging from the link between dyadic dominance and household maintenance, to role dilemmas and father-son dominance, to sex-role identity and dominant kinship relationships. The editor has contributed an introduction, an original essay on kinship and patterns of social cohesion, and a summary chapter to bring coherence to the diversity of opinion stated. This new presentation of Hsu's hypothesis, together with its discussion by eminent anthropologists and its recommendations for future research in the area, is an important addition to the literature on kinship."--Provided by publisher
