Moderator introduction:

Prince Yuan

Fordham accounting graduate students are reading. I usually like to browse all kinds of books and dream of becoming an encyclopedic figure. In addition to reading, there are two other hobbies in life - sports and cooking. The body is always the capital of the revolution, and only cooking can make a connotation. The ultimate goal of life - to get the hall, get the kitchen.

Share the bibliographic introduction:

A brief history of American race Ethic America‍

In the book "A Brief History of American Race", the author uses a large number of historical facts and figures to explain in a simple way the history of struggle and cultural history of various ethnic groups in the United States, including Irish, German, Italian, Japanese, Jewish, and Chinese. Mexicans, blacks, Puerto Ricans, etc.

As everyone knows, the United States is a melting pot of world culture. Each race has its own inherent qualities, both genetically and culturally. Compared with other races, these inherent properties also make them stand out in the environment where many races coexist. People who are willing to leave the country of their ancestors to come to the United States are more enterprising than those around them, and are more active in the face of difficulties, so the racial characteristics that are highlighted are even more apparent. Although the personality or way of thinking depends largely on the class in which people live, it still presents many common qualities necessary for success, such as emphasis on education, hard work, positiveness, and emphasis on the transfer of experience, which applies to all industries.

In the United States, the only way out for racial success is to maximize its traditional strengths and persevere in adapting and improving. Today, the wealthiest Jews and Japanese in the United States are all full practitioners of this experience.

The book was published in the United States in 1981 and has been in business for 30 years. American racial history has beyond the connotation of race itself. The informative data and analysis of racial characteristics in the book are still out of date, and are of great significance to China, which is increasingly diversified in economy and culture.
