This book is based on theory—and the most recent 2000 Census data available—to present an informed exploration of the diversity, depth, and significance of racial and ethnic relations in the United States. It is organized by racial-ethnic groups—rather than by issues, and draws heavily on a broad range of research sources that dig deep into the “what,” “why,” and “how” of racial and ethnic oppression and conflict. Fifteen major racial and ethnic groups are examined with regard to their incorporation, economic circumstances, political development, and experience with exploitation. For the numerous scholars, journalists, politicians—and people— concerned with the racial and ethnic issues of discrimination, oppression, and conflict that exist in the U.S.
