The second edition of Race and Ethnicity: The United States and the World continues its legacy as an introductory survey text covering the basic concepts and research of theoretical issues and empirical studies of race and ethnicity in the U.S. and throughout the world. 


Through state of the art chapters, Dr. Scupin introduces the concepts of race, the fallacies of scientific racism, and theoretical perspectives on ethnicity — followed by fourteen chapters that detail the empirical findings of anthropologists on race and ethnicity in the U.S. and the world.
