Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A collection of 27 readings for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, based on the assumption that the study of racial and ethnic relations should focus primarily on patterns of differential power and intergroup conflict. Many articles demonstrate that racial and ethnic relations cannot be understood apart from a transnational perspective, and all explore aspects of race and ethnicity in the US and address broader conceptual issues. Most selections are presented in their entirety, with introductions. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
