About the Author:

Richard T. Schaefer grew up in Chicago at a time when neighborhoods were going through transitions in ethnic and racial composition. He found himself increasingly intrigued by what was happening, how people were reacting, and how these changes were affecting neighborhoods and people’s jobs. In high school, he took a course in sociology. His interest in social issues caused him to gravitate to more sociology courses at Northwestern University, where he eventually received a B.A. in sociology. This interest led him to obtain his M.A. and Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Chicago. Dr. Schaefer’s continuing interest in race relations led him to write his master’s thesis on the membership of the Ku Klux Klan and his doctoral thesis on racial prejudice and race relations in Great Britain.


He has taught sociology and courses on multiculturalism for 30 years. He has been invited to give special presentations to students and faculty on racial and ethnic diversity in Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, and Texas.


Schaefer is the general editor of the three-volume Encyclopedia of Race, Ethnicity, and Society (2008). He is also the author of introductory sociology books with McGraw-Hill. Schaefer coauthored with William Zellner the ninth edition of Extraordinary Groups (2011). He served as president of the Midwest Sociological Society from 1994 to 1995. In recognition of his achievements in undergraduate teaching, he was named Vincent de Paul Professor of Sociology in 2004.

“The text has a strong introduction to the study of race and ethnicity that would be valuable in any course. Part 1 does an impressive job of laying out the key terms and ideas with which every student should develop a familiarity.”

-Brian Jara, The Pennsylvania State University


“[This text has:] 1. great coverage of the groups; 2. good use of facts and stats; 3. good coverage of group-specific contemporary issues.”

-Gerald Titchener, Des Moines Area Community College


“Great overview of all the important groups, areas, and issues.”

-Dr. Loyd Ganey, College of Southern Nevada


“All the tables, figures, and boxed features are informative, easy to understand and useful. I will often reference these in a lecture and draw student's attention to a specific feature to make a point.”

-Jose Soto, Southeast Community College


“This is a very thorough analytical text on minority groups in the US, supplemented with cases, global perspective and research focus. The text covers major topics and themes pertinent to diversity issues.”
