Overview

Almost thirty authors representing nearly 20 academic institutions are included in this book about race relations on college campuses. As many facets as possible of the college experience are examined: teaching, faculty-student contact, faculty friendships, social distance, dating, music, sexual orientation and much more. Key sociological variables are considered. Some of the articles have been written based on personal experience. The authors present to the reader, meaningfully and responsibly, the quality and quantity of contact between African Americans and whites on predominantly white campuses across our nation.

Booknews
Moore (sociology, Frostburg State U.) presents 18 contributions that sociologically study facets of the American college experience through the prism of race relations. Often, the articles draw from the existing literature, original sociological research, and personal experience. Topics addressed include white cultural appropriation of hip-hop, the history of the Black Student Union, identifying as both black and gay, racial policy views of white college students, interaction patterns between white and black students, the problems faced by black professors of ethnicity teaching white students, the relationship between marginality and social segregation, and the interactions of race and gender.
