BECOMING AMERICAN by Irene D. Jaworski


Email this review


In the Bureau of Intercultural Education Publication Series, this is written for younger groups and is intended for use in high schools, presents the problem of the immigrant and the conflict between the first and second generation. Through typical experiences, and with suggestions for essays and projects to be developed in relation to this material, this explains why ""they left home""- the economic, political and social motives; what the new country promised; the statistics of immigration; the conditions faced on arrival and the formation of ethnic communities; anti-immigrant manifestations as well as the rift between old and young; and finally the Anglo-American dominance which frustrates democratic conditions. Valid and valuable for a defined, predetermined market.
