But when we ask about the implications for children's learning and performance in the school institution, the construct quickly become slippery to hold. The 2001 volume provides five original papers that offer new empirical evidence on the nature and life of social capital across diverse ethnic groups and cultural settings. These fresh studies delve into the resources embedded in Latino and Asian-American peer groups, how immigrant parents' networks and norms variably push their children to achieve in school, and how teenagers' involvement in ethnic-rooted churches contribute social capital. The volume includes three commentaries, authored by David Baker, Patricia Fernández-Kelly, and Raymond Wong, and a review chapter by the editors."@en ;
