A comprehensive bibliographic survey of the West Indian presence in the United States, this book covers over 500 articles, books, and other studies on the West Indian immigrant experience. The primary goal is to cite titles examining both the impact of the immigration experience on West Indians and the way West Indians have changed the nature of many communities in the United States. The work outlines the long history in the United States economic life, education, ethnicity and race relations, family relationships, health care, patterns of immigration and settlement, and political expression.
Drawing on books, scholarly journal articles, dissertations, research reports, and significant articles from general interest magazines and newspapers, the book's goal is to lead interested students to material that examines how the United States does and does not meet the hopes and dreams of Caribbean immigrants of African descent. Providing bibliographic leads for exploring new avenues of research on West Indian Americans, the book will be especially valuable for those seeking to expand their knowledge base on this major component of our country's urban landscape.
There are two reasons the author has for putting forth this little volume: he feels that the time is, as it always has been, ripe for it; and second, his soul has ever longed to express itself upon this endless theme.

How can I attain to a true and lasting greatness? How can I fill the whole of life with a happiness, a peace, a joy, a satisfaction that is ever rich and abiding, that ever increases, never diminishes, that imparts to it a sparkle that never loses its luster, that ever fascinates, never wearies? Ralph Waldo Trine was a philosopher, mystic, teacher, author and early mentors of the New Thought Movement. As an author Trine has far outsold other New Thought authors.

America has been peopled as if by a great human river, which, rising in Asia, has traversed the continent from north to south, receiving along its course a few small tributaries. This river resembles the torrent streams of which we have examples in France. Usually, and occasionally for years at a time, their bed is nearly dry. Then some great storm comes, and a liquid avalanche descends from the mountains where their sources lie, covers and ravages the plain, turning over the ancient alluviums, stirring up and mixing the old and new materials, and carrying farther each time the debris it has torn up on its passage. Like this has been the career of our ethnological river. Its floods have, besides, often been diverted to the right or left, and it has opened new derivations. It has also had its eddies. But its general direction has not changed, and we can trace it down to the present..."
