This text is a brief, economical introduction to the core theories, concepts, and issues for students studying race and ethnic relations in the United States.
This new edition contains thoroughly updated data and information, including the most recent and relevant studies not only in sociology but also in many other related fields. There are expanded discussions throughout the text, including: the shaping of perceptions, social distance, difference between race and ethnicity, the culture of poverty, and more.
Also, the last chapter, “Contemporary Patterns and Issues,” has been extensively revised to reflect recent and current events. Added are new sections on transnationalism, social capital, segmented assimilation, naturalization, and language retention. This chapter, enhanced by the use of graphics to further student understanding, thoroughly examines the extensive debate and actions surrounding legal immigration and undocumented migrants.
