Overview

The only brief text to present a unified sociological frame of reference to help students analyze minority-dominant relations

The fourth edition of Joseph F. Healey's Diversity and Society, updated to include the latest information from the 2010 census, continues to provide a solid foundation for understanding minority-dominant relations. Derived in part from bestselling Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class, this accessible 10-chapter text teaches concepts and theories through current, engaging topics, such as immigration and slavery in the world today. The concepts are reinforced through case studies and enhanced through gender and comparative perspectives. Particular emphasis is given to the history of race and ethnicity in the United States—more coverage than any other brief text.
