[?] Notwithstanding that disparate individual social and political status, the experiences of all newcomers in the New World have commonality in terms of mainly confrontation with differing cultures and the resultant endeavors to cultivate and maintain group cultural heritage, i.e.customs, literary traditions, oral traditions, religious beliefs, rituals, value systems, philosophies, music, paintings, and languages. [?] The studies undertaken and presented by the authors within this volume encompass a wide spectrum of American literary intercultural discourses.
