Chapter I

Introduction

Statement of the Problem

The general purpose of this study is to determine whether such families in the Latvian population of Kalamazoo as insist upon considering themselves exiles and refuse to accept their immigrant status are less acculturated and assimilated than are such families that accept their immigrant status regardless of the fact that their original emigration from Latvia was a departure into exile. Also this study proposes to determine what social, cultural, economic and other variables are associated with each of the two types of families.
