Created as a reference guide to encompass various minority health issues for the four major US ethnic minority groups (Native Americans/Alaska Natives, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian/Pacific Islander Americans) in one volume. It is a selective resource for the data and research that currently exists; selected materials cover the last 25 years, and are copyrighted 1970-1995. The format focus of Ethnic Minority Health is monographs. However, approximately forty percent of the volume contains government documents, conference proceedings, independently published reports, and dedicated journal issues. Other formats included are directories, bibliographies, serials, multimedia and an extensive listing of dissertations and masters theses. All entries for monographs, government documents and proceedings entries are annotated and contain full bibliographic data. The book features nine quick access sections that are divided first by material format or broad subject area and then by ethnic group. Author and extensive subject indexes allow accurate and comprehensive concept searching. Recommended for all medical libraries, health care providers, community health care workers, public health care workers, policy makers and social workers.
