Overview

Yang (sociology, Texas Woman's University; ethnic studies, California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo) offers a comprehensive definition of ethnic studies, covering both the major issues of the field and its theoretical and methodological approaches. He traces the origins and evolution of the discipline, and maps its domain. The majority of this book considers central issues in ethnicity, including identity, stratification, adaptation, discrimination, segregation, racism, and conflict. Special consideration is given to the relationship between race, class, and gender. For each issue, key concepts are introduced, empirical evidence presented, and theoretical approaches discussed.
