Book Description:
Acculturation is the exchange of cultural features that results when groups of individuals having different cultures come into continuous first hand contact; the original cultural patterns of either or both groups may be altered, but the groups remain distinct. This book gathers the most current research in the study of acculturation from across the globe. Some topics discussed in this compilation are acculturation and its influence on adolescent interpersonal and self-directed violence; acculturation success in employment among Chinese migrants from the Mainland to Hong Kong; and the dynamics of second-culture acquisition for Latino immigrant adolescents. (Imprint: Nova Press)
