Designed to increase readers' awareness of healthful family processes across and within ethnic households, this book features 45 accessible, non-technical articles on 9 substantive family-related issues. Organized by topics rather than ethnic groups, it features selections that examine the intersections of social class, age, sexual orientation, gender differences, and intragroup variations. It provides selections that are representative of the increasing "heterogeneity of diversity" of contemporary ethnic families in the U.S. Features representative articles on five ethnic groups--African-Americans (including African and Caribbean families); Latinos (including Cuban-Americans, Mexican-Americans, and Puerto Rican-Americans); Asian-Americans (including Korean-Americans, Japanese-Americans, Chinese-Americans, Filipino-Americans, Pacific Islanders, Vietnamese-Americans, Cambodian-Americans, Indian Americans, and Laotian-Americans); American Indians; and Middle Eastern Americans (including Arab-Americans and Muslim families). Explores the ethnic families' characteristics, variations, and dynamics in terms of socialization, gender roles, marriage and communication, parenting, work and discrimination, social class, violence and other family crises, separation and divorce, and family caregiving and aging. For professionals in healthcare and practitioners who work with ethnic families.
