Diversity and Society: Race, Ethnicity, and Gender, 2011/2012 Update / Edition 3by Joseph F. Healey
Pub. Date: 03/02/2011
Publisher: SAGE Publications
Derived in part from Joseph F. Healey’s best-selling text Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class, this accessible 10-chapter text teaches concepts and theories through current, engaging topics, such as the Obama election and presidency and the economic recession. An analysis of minority-dominant relations is presented clearly, 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 with more coverage than any other brief text.
