Encounters with American Ethnic Cultures represents a cultural approach to understanding ethnic diversity in the Philadelphia metropolitan area.Thirteen chapters, each using an ethnographic field methodology, explore such ethnic experience as the 'invisible' (WASPS and African-America... ns); 'self-chosen' (Welsh-American, Irish-American, and Ukrainian-American); 'gender-related' (the Lubovitcher); 'religious' (Jewish, Native American, Greek-American, and Puerto Rican); and 'dislocated' (Cambodians and the homeless).
