One of the most widely recognized and best-known introductions to the study of race and ethnic relations in the United States, They and We is the book by which many of today's social scientists were first introduced to the sociology of intergroup relations. Praised for its engaging, even-handed, jargon-free style, They and We draws students into the excitement of learning about this society and the ways by which to analyze its complexities. Chapters are self-contained essays which, woven together, provide a seamless overview of intergroup relations. The Fifth Edition has been divided into four sections -- Concepts and Contexts, The American People, Attitudes, Actions, and Reactions, and Power, Politics, and Pluralism -- and gives increased emphasis to the histories and experiences of all of America's peoples.

"Reading Peter Rose's They and We in the aftermath of the Paris riots makes one realize that, despite some continuing disparities, how far America has progressed toward a multicultural society, and how far Europeans still have to go. They and We should be translated into every language in Europe and done so with all due speed…The revised They and We contains 40 years of accumulated wisdom by one of America's most astute and sensitive observers of inter-group and international relations." —Dr. Timothy W. Ryback, Historian and Director, Salzburg Seminar
"They and We is a unique resource: not a standard textbook but an extended, erudite, and deeply engaging essay, itself evolving over the tumultuous decades that it covers with a historian's keen grasp of changing contexts, a novelist's eye for detail, and the sociological imagination to connect biography and history within social structures. Updated and expanded, Peter I. Rose's classic book is an informed and illuminating meditation on some of the most intractable issues of our age: the persistence of "color lines," the meaning of "race," the rebirth of nativism in a new era of mass immigration, the construction and deconstruction of ethnic identities, and the forces that "assimilate" or divide "them" and "us" in American society." —Rubén G. Rumbaut, co-author of Immigrant America: A Portrait, and Legacies: The Story of the Immigrant Second Generation.
"Rose brings more than four decades of observation and reflection to his analysis of race and ethnicity in the United States. He helps us understand both our recent past and the currents now moving us into the future. Students will particularly appreciate Rose's lively and engaging writing style. They will hear his voice on the page and feel his message that sociological realism can debunk popular misconceptions about race and ethnicity." — Jeremy Hein, Ph.D. Professor of Sociology, University of Wisconsin-Eau ClaireAbout the Author:
