Overview

Developed from the critically acclaimed Dictionary of Race and Ethnic Relations, now in its fourth edition, the Encyclopedia of Race and Ethnic Studies has been assembled by a world-class team of international scholars led by Ellis Cashmore to provide an authoritative, single-volume reference work on all aspects of race and ethnic studies. From "Aboriginal Australians" to "Zionism," "sexuality" to "social work," "beauty" to "hybridity," the Encyclopedia is organized alphabetically and reflects cultural diversity in a global context.

Although unafraid to engage with cutting-edge theory, the Encyclopedia is uncluttered by jargon and has been written in a lucid, "facts-fronted" style to offer an accessible introduction to race and ethnic studies. The Encyclopedia is also fully cross-referenced and thoroughly indexed with many entries followed by annotated up-to-date suggestions for further reading to guide the user to the key sources. It is a reference work for scholars and students of race and ethnic studies, as well as a handy resource for journalists and other professionals working in the field.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Based on the author's Dictionary of Race and Ethnic Relations, published in a fourth edition in 1997 and now out of print, this one-volume encyclopedia provides authoritative information on a wide variety of aspects of race and ethnicity. The encyclopedia is nearly 100 pages longer than the dictionary (which was, however, in smaller type); 43 entries were added, and other entries were revised and expanded. Cashmore (culture, media, & sport, Sch. of Health, Staffordshire Univ.) wrote most of the entries, but he also called on 80 contributors, mainly from the United Kingdom and the United States, making the coverage international if perhaps Anglocentric. The entries, which range from concise 400-word annotations to comprehensive 2000-word essays, are scholarly enough for faculty seeking brief treatment of a topic but also accessible to upper-level undergraduates as well as graduate students. In addition, most entries include See Also references and a short list of readings. The issues addressed include the Holocaust, the Ku Klux Klan, 9/11, welfare, Zionism, and much more, and Cashmore made an attempt to address criticism of his dictionary by adding entries for terms and legal cases having importance in the United States, e.g., "O.J. Simpson." The introduction provides an excellent overview but doesn't offer much detail on the criteria for inclusion, the choice of contributors, any differences from the dictionary, or even whether the "Reading" sections were used to prepare the entries or are merely suggestions for further reading. Because this work is pricey, librarians may want to consider alternatives like Guido Bolaffi's Dictionary of Race, Ethnicity, and Culture. Still, the coverage does not significantly overlap with more general dictionaries of sociology, not even with Susan Auerbach's lengthier Encyclopedia of Multiculturalism. Recommended for academic libraries supporting programs in the sociology of race that found the dictionary useful.-Rosanne M. Cordell, Indiana Univ. Lib., South Bend Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
