Abstract:

The essays in this volume focus on the historical and social evolution of six American ethnic groups. Thomas Sowell discusses similarities and differences in the experiences of antebellum "free persons of color," emancipated slaves and their descendants, and West Indian immigrants, and examines trends in the socioeconomic status of black Americans. In an essay on Chinese and Japanese Americans, William Peterson reviews the histories of their immigration to the United States and addresses the themes of social mobility, social pathology, and acculturation. Alice Kessler-Harris and Virginia Yans-McLaughlin similarly explore the economic and social mobility of three European immigrant groups, the Irish, the Italians, and the Jews, explaining their differential mobility by economic, educational, cultural and political factors, as well as racism. Variation in income among different ethnic groups is examined by Eric Hanushek. This author considers educational factors and local labor market forces, and emphasizes the need for understanding the latter. Richard B. Freeman focuses on racial discrimination in the academic marketplace, examining statistics on employment of black faculty in higher education. The issue of race and intelligence is reviewed by Thomas Sowell, who describes a research project on intergroup differences in mental test scores. An essay by Leon J. Kamin, which reviews data on sibling I.Q. correlations among ethnic groups, concludes the volume. (Gc).
