Race and Ethnic Relations: American and Global Perspectives is intended to explore race and ethnic relations in a global context, while covering extensively groups and issues in American society. The need for such a comparative approach seems critical today in light of the increasing ethnic diversity of the United States and most other contemporary societies, as well as the prominence of ethnic conflicts in virtually all world regions. With immigration at unprecedented levels, Americans have become increasingly mindful of their society's changing racial and ethnic configuration and it's attendant economic, cultural, and political issues. Though usually uninformed about complexities, they have also become at least vaguely aware of comparable issues in other societies.
