Based on interviews with the owners and staff and examination of documents, this book describes how the business with a multi-ethnic staff of engineers, architects, and support personnel was founded and has continued to thrive through changes in the market.

It includes many practical ideas that can be transferred to other multi-ethnic companies so that staff members work and pull together as a team. Revised from a 1995 Phd dissertation for the University of San Francisco.
