The first of its kind, this book presents an introductory profile of Dominicans as an ethnic minority in the United States.


Examines the historical and cultural background of Dominicans, and their motivations for emigrating to the US, discussing education, health issues, drugs and violence, the visual and performing arts, popular music, religion, food, gender, and race. Traces the growth of a unique immigrant culture since the beginning of mass immigration in the mid-1960s, and evaluates the achievements of Dominican Americans in American society.
