Summary

Both the women’s suffrage and civil rights movements laid the groundwork for some of the groups featured in this book, who were often less visible than women and African Americans. But over the last few decades, ethnic groups such as Asians and Latinos and organizations representing such interests as the elderly and people with disabilities have been able to attain political and social power through advocacy. The Ethnic and Group Identity Movements is an intriguing examination of these nascent yet influential groups, whose recent rise in visibility has mirrored the profound changes occurring within the fabric of American society.
