Abstract

Central Americans constitute a rapidly growing segment of the population in Mexico and the United States. Their presence has become more apparent since the early 1980s when several hundred thousand Guatemalans, Nicaraguans and Salvadorans fled war-torn Central America. To date very few studies have been done on the acculturation of Central Americans into American society; instead their concentrate on immigration policy, migration, and refugees. More studies have been written on the integration of refugees into Mexican society. This bibliography lists many sources in which information about Central Americans in both Mexico and the United States can be found. The sources are located in the Benson Latin American Collection.
