Abstract : This report is a comprehensive review of the social science literature on interpersonal relations among Hispanics in the United States. The materials were content analyzed in terms of a series of dimensions of intercultural variation (Triandis, 1981) which have been found to be highly relevant to interpersonal relations. Topics covered include thought patterns, basic value orientations, aspects of identification and social differentiations. The literature indicates that there is little consensus on many of the dimensions explored and suggests numerous hypotheses for further research. Some authors argue for subcultural differences, others assert that major changes are occurring, and still others warn against attributing specific cultural attributes to Hispanics. Similiarities and differences among the various Hispanic groups were also examined, focusing primarily on Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans and Cubans. (Author)
