Overview

Equality Deferred: Race, Ethnicity, and Immigration in America, Since 1945 / Edition 1

Issues of diversity have been and remain a key aspect of contemporary America. James Olson draws on his experience as a distinguished scholar and teacher to develop a portrait that encompasses various ethnic groups in the U.S.-including African American, Native American, Hispanics, and immigrants from a variety of nations. In this brief text, he sketches the ever-changing ethnic portrait of America, incorporating the most relevant scholarship on the civil rights crusade, immigration quotas, various militant movements of the sixties, and the current state of ethnicity in the U.S. This volume is part of the AMERICA SINCE 1945 series—a collection of brief texts that seek to define the ways in which the United States has changed in the last 50 years.
