Product Details

Editorial Reviews


Given the paucity of research on ethnic minority youth, and given demographics that suggest that minority populations will continue to grow, this volume is likely to become a staple in the libraries of researchers and policymakers alike.
Child Development Abstracts and Bibliography

The authors of this volume provide answers to these questions that will be valuable to a variety of academic fields, such as psychology, family studies, and ecomonics, and to those whose professional fields interwine with knowledge of ethnic minorities, such as social service agencies and policy personnel....McLoyd and Steinberg's edited book provides excellent backgound information for future discussions of the trends.
