In America, ethnic communities do not exist in a vacuum that precludes
interethnic relationships and influence. In fact, the United States'
ethnic variety has led to the creation and development of unique American
cultural ways within established ethnic communities because of this

literature that considers the relationship between ethnicities and the
consequences of this interaction and of the shifting of ethnic boundaries.

A full range of approaches to and perspectives on the topic is encouraged.
