Overview

Literature, Race and Ethnicity is a text-anthology of American literature organized around issues of race and ethnicity. Divided into nine units, the anthology gives focus to issues of race and ethnicity faced by members of different communities. Located at every section opening, introductions help readers to see issues within the general ideas of race and ethnicity. Throughout the book, attention to historical context allows readers to see ethnicity and race as a perennial American issue. Awareness of "whiteness" and white ethnicity helps readers to place themselves in the story. Includes well-written and accessible works by writers from many racial and ethnic communities. For those interested in literature and American studies.
