Resiliency in Native American and Immigrant Families

Resiliency in Native American and Immigrant Families

Edited by:

July 1998 | 472 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This book brings a fresh perspective to family and social ties which promote resiliency in Hawaiian and Native American, Asian American and Latino / Hispanic American cultures.

The contributors give extensive examples of the ceaseless war between cultures where too often holistic and socially cohesive practices have been torn apart by growing westernization and materialism.
