Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0964206870, Paperback)

What kind of indignities does a segment of the population suffer when it is made virtually invisible to the dominant culture? Is there a tradeoff between preservation of ethnic pride and power? What does it take for Filipino Americans to make their influence known in the United States of America while maintaining important aspects of their cultural heritage? This book boldly proclaims a politic of hope for Filipino Americans everywhere. Based upon careful critical ethnographic research, Dr. Munoz provides critical insights regarding power, education, lifestyle and equality in this modern age of information technology and sweeping global corporatism and economic shifts. Even astute observers of the U.S. culture will be surprised by the findings. And Filipino Americans will be proud and perhaps inspired to take their rightful place at the highesst levels of decision making. Starting now.
