Explorations in Ethnic Studies
The thesis of "From the Ground Up . . ." may be characterized as optimistic, imaginative, and inspirational, viewing as it does the extended role of multiethnic literature in humanities curricula. Unless a humane community, or even a sense of community, as envisioned, is built, the viability of America as a pluralistic nation is very much at risk. Placing the beginning of building such a realization of a "sense of community" upon the individual's responsible actions resulting from the reflection and decision well justifies the title Bedrosian selected.
