Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book opens with the fact that today's U.S. teens are the most "racially diverse in the nation's history," and that they are the more racially tolerant than any previous generation. A 1999 Gallup poll, included in the first chapter, reveals that 57% of teenagers feel public schools should offer classes on race relations as required instruction. Yet, this 2004 publication, points out discrepancies in perspective between blacks and whites and a host of concerns remaining between the many races represented in America. Eye-opening sections about the history of prejudice, segregation, changing attitudes in the U.S and the post-civil rights movement will provide adolescent readers with a good starting point for further research. Each chapter includes plenty of statistics, a Gallup youth survey with pie graph results, and sidebars with additional facts. Discussion of popular icons and current events, as they relate to the topic of race, provide relevant examples for adolescent readers. Chapter 6 is entirely devoted to the discussion of Muslims in America and the hostility that arose between Muslims and non-Muslims since the September 11 attacks. Further reading suggestions and internet resources are included. 2004, Mason Crest Publishers, Ages 14 to 18.
