Summary

This new, entirely revamped edi-tion of the immensely popular reader Awakening Minorities, pub-lished in 1970, provides a status re-port on these social groups. What has a decade meant to them? How have changes in the sociopolitical and economic environments af-fected the ways in which these groups pursue their objectives?

In his new and thoughtful in-troductory essay to this second edition John Howard provides a historical context for the articles appearing in this volume. The is-sues of the 1980s are different from those of the 1960s, and for these articles to be fully under-stood they have to be placed against the broad unfolding of race issues, problems, and dilem-mas in American history. The re-cent economic situation has pro-duced an analytic framework less hospitable to public investment in meliorative programs for minority groups. The presence of large numbers of new immigrants— Koreans, Philippines, and Indi-ans—interested in entrepreneurialindependence is contrasted with the problems of the older minority groups.
