Rethinking the Color Line: Readings in Race and Ethnicity

Rethinking the Color Line: Readings in Race and Ethnicity Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This anthology of current research and writings examines contemporary issues and explores new approaches to the study of race and ethnic relations.

Book News Annotation:

This anthology helps students understand race and ethnicity as a social construction and illustrates how these factors are embedded in the institutions that structure their own lives. Nearly 50 readings by established and emerging scholars expose students to the most important theoretical debates. New to the third edition is a statistical appendix presenting "quality of life" data (income, health, etc.) for Americans of various racial and ethnic groups.
