The period of the second part of the XX century is characterized by the formation of the new branches of historical science: Latin American history (Chicano history), Slavic history, and the history if international relationship.
Speaking about the Chicano interpretation of history it is worth mentioning that the USA is a multi-cultural country and that is why many approaches to the historical sciences are acceptable.
The Chicano trend in historiography is relatively new and is frequently developing now. Here I would like to mention the concept of transculturation and to cite some words of Octavio I. Romano :
“U.S. "acculturation" has its deepest roots in the comparatively homogenous, expansionist, empire-oriented upper-class imperial echelons of Anglo-British-Germanic culture. As such, it is an extension of a conqueror culture.
On the other hand, in Mexican anthropology the principal concept of culture change is "transculturation." This concept holds that culture change is a bi-cultural, multi-linear and synthesizing process in which the ultimate end is the incorporation of cultural differences while the original forms pursue their own multi-cultural diversity.”
