Multicultural Films : A Reference Guide
Janice R. WelschISBN: 0313319758;
Book DescriptionFrom its earliest beginnings, the United States of America has been composed of immigrants from nations around the world. Some, like European Americans, came voluntarily in search of better opportunities. Others, like African Americans, were brought as captives to their new land. Native Americans were forced to adjust to these new groups and the others that came after them, such as Latino Americans, Asian Americans, and most recently, Arab Americans. How these groups learned, or did not learn, to adapt to one another in their adoptive homeland has become the focus of many provocative films, over 150 of which are identified and discussed in this book. Covering films from the earliest part of the century through today, this book is ideal for educators and students searching for films treating the experiences of specific ethnic groups, as well as film fans who love unforgettable stories.
