Editorial Reviews

The seventh and concluding volume in the Garland series contains 18 essays. Conflict among parties and social movements organized on the basis of race and ethnicity being less evident in Latin America than in other heterogeneous societies, scholars ponder the nature of race and ethnicity with regard to both Afro-American and Indo-American societies, with research on Brazil being particularly prominent. Special attention is given to the relationship between social class and race and ethnicity. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
