Explorations in Sights and Sounds
The comparative nature of this book is its most outstanding feature. The editors and authors have all worked to make their approaches to the question of acculturation and ethnicity as comparable as possible across chapters -- and across ethnic groups. The overall framework stresses the differing stresses that individuals in each ethnic group have had to struggle with in their quest to "become American.” It also emphasizes the importance of recognizing that no group is monolithic in its responses to acculturative pressures, that there is always a range of individual paths which might be chosen.
