Summary This book studies five ethnic communities--South Asian Americans, African Americans, Japanese Americans, Mexican Americans, and Somoan Americans--to understand how their members feel about being studied by researchers. American society has always had tension between and among ethnic groups, and yet our researchers are given limited training, if any, on how to approach various ethnic communities, all of which see their problems and needs differently than those outside their communities. This book bridges that gap by focusing on trust-building as a necessary process in doing good community resea.
