Description 1 online resource
Summary American Ethnic Practices in the Early Twenty-first Century: The Milwaukee Study is based on a twelve-year research project conducted in a Midwestern urban center. Unlike many works since Barth (1970) that have moved toward deconstructing ethnicity, this book takes a new approach by focusing on ethnic practices and their contributions to the wider society. It is a must read for those engaged in academic debates about the role of ethnicity in America today.>
