From the Publisher"This is an excellent book and a very worthy contribution to thefield. Fenton does a remarkably good job of synthesizing keydebates in a contentious, very active field, doing so in a livelymanner. Ranging broadly, he deals equally well with more conceptualas well as more empirical matters. He straightforwardly presentshis own, quite sensible point of view, all the while consistentlyretaining an open, fair-minded approach to the intellectually anddisciplinarily diverse set of authors that he discusses. The manyhistorical and international cases discussed by the book make it ofparticular value."
—Roger Waldinger, University of California
"This new edition of Steve Fenton's Ethnicity updateswhat was in any case one of most acute studies of the relationbetween ethnicity and other factors such as class. In the NewEdition these issues are looked at in a wider contextgeographically including Latin America and Asia, while alsobringing them up to date in the light of contemporary politics, newstatistical material and recent theoretical debates."
—John Rex, University of Warwick
"This new edition, even more than the original, is anexceptionally useful teaching tool. It is comprehensive,comprehensible, and concise, the three attributes we all look forwhen assigning books to our students. While it can serve well forundergraduates being introduced to the analysis of ethnicity, it isalso a very good review of the scholarly work in this area so thatadvanced graduate students would do well to read it."
