Overview

Assembling the most provocative, productive new thinking on race in one volume.
The third volume in The Society Pages series tackles race, ethnicity, and diversity in contemporary American society. As with our previous volumes, the chapters are organized into three main sections. “Core Contributions” exemplifies how sociologists and other social scientists think about race-related groups and topics—in this case the demographics of race, the construction of group identities, and the social psychology of prejudice and racism. Chapters in the “Cultural Contexts” section engage race and diversity in and through cultural realms—ranging from mass media and sports to the environment—in which powerful racial dimensions are sometimes overlooked. Finally, the “Critical Takes” chapters provide sociological commentary, perspective, and reflections on the problematic structure and future of race relations in the United States.
