This text explores race and ethnic relations in a global context, while extensively covering groups and issues in the United States. The text's unique comparative approach is increasingly important and relevant in light of the growing ethnic diversity in a variety of societies as well as the prominence of ethnic conflicts throughout the world. This text offers instructors an opportunity to introduce comparative content in their courses while not sacrificing an American focus.

About the Author:

Martin N. Marger received his bachelor's degree from the University of Miami, his master's degree from Florida State University, and his doctorate from Michigan State University. In addition to his research and writing in the field of race and ethnic relations, his work includes studies in social inequality and political sociology. He is also the author of SOCIAL INEQUALITY: PATTERNS AND PROCESSES.

Review:

"(The writing style) is the best part of the project. The style of writing is more narrative in form and vastly easier to understand for students. Concepts and ideas are developed in such a way that students can retain them longer than more conventional styles." "I am impressed with two things. First, the emphasis on "white ethnics" especially Italian-Americans because they fit better the conflict paradigm in terms of their experiences with prejudice and discrimination. Second, the global coverage. I know of no other text that does this in such a complete way."

"I received a copy of Marger's text and after a review of the book, I immediately knew it was the text I had been looking for. First, I found one of the major strengths of the book to be its organization, its very distinctive approach. Marger makes it very clear that his focus is to present the major concepts and theories grounding the study of race and ethnic relations and then apply these to various racial and ethnic groups. Part 1 "The Nature of Ethnic Relations" introduces the students to the basic concepts and theories, and as we know, for many students, dealing with the abstract can be quite challenging. Marger, however, brings the abstract alive when in Part II, he applies these concepts and theories to specific racial and ethnic groups. This particular framework has provided me with a most productive pedagogical design in the classroom." "Marger's writing is very clear and precise with no room for anything extraneous. He succinctly gets to the point - no verbiage. Clearly, this text was written with teaching and students in mind."

"There is a global perspective present in this book. It presents information that students need to understand for their careers."
