Durable Ethnicity

Mexican Americans and the Ethnic Core

Edward Telles and Christina A. Sue

  • Rooted in a large-scale longitudinal and representative survey of 1,500 Mexican Americans living in the American West across 35 years
  • Examines what ethnicity means and how it is negotiated in the lives of multiple generations of Mexican Americans
  • Draws on in-depth interviews to examine the individual ethnic strategies and demonstrate that integration is often a back and forth process that varies by individual rather than a one-way movement
  • Written by leading social scientists on immigration, race, and ethnicity
