This popular text on racial and ethnic relations in the U.S. covers theoretical issues and the experiences of over fifty minority groups. The author provides broad, comparative coverage of European Americans; racial and ethnic groups representing “visible” minorities; and other groups with minority status. To this last section, which includes women and religious minorities, he has added a new chapter (14) that discusses gays, people with disabilities, and the elderly.
The experience of each group is examines in a socio-historical context, followed by analysis of their contemporary situation. Boxed features expose readers to the first-hand accounts of immigrants to the U.S., and examples of immigrant and inter-group experiences in other societies. The final chapter, “The Ever-Changing U.S. Mosaic,” brings synthesis to the many groups and issues represented in the text.
The ninth edition is thoroughly updated and provides expanded discussions of many timely topics, including: discrimination against Muslim Americans in the post-9/11 era; minority-minority relations; diversity training in the corporate world; and arguments for and against slavery reparations.
