This is a significant update to the highly influential text People and Cultures of Hawai'i:A Psychocultural Profile. Since its publication in 1980, the immigrant groups it discusses indepth have matured and new ones have been added to the mix. The present work tracks thecourse of these changes over the past twenty years, constructing a historical understanding ofeach group as it evolved from race to ethnicity to culture. Individual chapters begin with an overviewof one of fifteen groups. Following the development of its unique ethnocultural identity,distinctive character traits such as temperament and emotional expression are explored-as wellas ethnic stereotypes. Also discussed are modifications to the group's ethnocultural identityover time and generational change-which traits may have changed over generations and whichare more hardwired or enduring. An important feature of each chapter is the focus on thegroup's family social structure, generational and gender roles, power distribution, and centralvalues and life goals. Readers will also find a description of the group's own internal socialclass structure, social and political strategies, and occupational and educational patterns. Finally,contributors consider how a particular ethnic group has blended into Hawai'i's culturally sensitivesociety.
