Overview

This book focuses on the five largest ethnic groups in the U.S. - Mexican Americans, African Americans, Native Americans, Japanese Americans, and Puerto Ricans. McLemore et al present historical information and contemporary examples of the largest ethnic and minority groups in the United States. Using the assimilation model, they analyze the strengths and weaknesses of this model in explaining how various racial and ethnic groups have been incorporated (or not) into U.S. society. Focusing on interracial and interethnic relations in the U.S., the authors give a sociological analysis of intergroup processes and the history of the interactions of these groups. Organized thematically rather than chronologically, the book illuminates the main racial and ethnic dilemmas faced in America as shown through the examples of these five groups. For anyone interested in Racial and Ethnic Relations, Minority Relations, Multicultural Education, or Ethnic Studies.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Focuses on interracial and interethnic relations in the US based on a sociological analysis of intergroup processes and the histories of American groups. Within the historical framework, which moves from the colonial period to current immigration legislation, pertinent social topics are discussed, including the reactions of natives to foreigners, class and ethnic stratification, and economic adaptations. Although the volume touches on virtually every group in the US, the primary analyses detail Japanese Americans, Mexican Americans, African Americans, and Native Americans. The new edition gives greater attention to the role of women in many of the groups, current immigration policies, debates over bilingual education, and affirmative action.

This text moves, broadly speaking, from the first contact among different groups in North America to contemporary racial and ethnic problems. Differences, assimilation, prejudice, discrimination, stratification, mobility, stereotyping, social distance, authoritarianism, social pressure, segregation, and desegregation are all discussed, as are the processes by which ethnic groups form, organize, and disappear.
