Gale, Third Edition, 2014

From the Editor's Note

The third edition of the Gale Encyclopedia of Multicultural America—a major revision to the previous editions published in 1995 and 2000—includes 175 entries, each focusing on an immigrant or indigenous group in the United States. Some entries provide historical and cultural overviews of commonly recognized groups, such as Mexican Americans and Japanese Americans, while others discuss much smaller groups-for example, Cape Verdean Americans, Jordanian Americans, and the Ojibwe. The third edition has 23 new entries; the 152 entries from the second edition were thoroughly revised and reorganized, creating up-to-date coverage and a more consistent approach throughout the book. The writing or revision of each entry was reviewed by a scholar with extensive research background in the group.
