Mapping "Race": Critical Approaches to Health Disparities Research (Critical Issues in Health and Medicine)

9780813561370: Mapping

Researchers commonly ask subjects to self-identify their race from a menu of preestablished options. Yet if race is a multidimensional, multilevel social construction, this has profound methodological implications for the sciences and social sciences. Race must inform how we design large-scale data collection and how scientists utilize race in the context of specific research questions. This landmark collection argues for the recognition of those implications for research and suggests ways in which they may be integrated into future scientific endeavors. It concludes on a prescriptive note, providing an arsenal of multidisciplinary, conceptual, and methodological tools for studying race specifically within the context of health inequalities.

Review:

"The essays from various disciplines in this collection thoughtfully examine how conceptions of race (or ethnicity) create disparities in health care and its outcomes. Recommended."
(Choice 2014-03-01)

"Mapping 'Race' provides keen insights about race as a social construction. With its coherent theme and presentation of possible ways to study race and health, this book will fill an important vacuum in the scholarship on the topic."
(David T. Takeuchi University of Washington 2012-09-12)

"The arguments in Mapping 'Race' are at the cutting edge of research; the authors' tight focus on health and health disparities is sensible and timely. Besides outlining racial disparities in health, the authors provide an executable set of solutions." (Rachel T. Kimbro Rice University 2013-03-20)

"an important collection that introduces some of the specific methodological debates on the intersection between race and health inequalities in the USA." (Ethnic and Racial Studies)

"What is race? The contributors in Mapping Race brilliantly renew, reconsider, and reimagine this question in light of the pressing new challenges facing the way we think about diverging health outcomes. Mapping Race is necessary reading." (American Journal of Sociology 2015-01-01)
