Description

For courses in Majority-Minority Relations, Racial and Ethnic Relations, Cultural Diversity, and Multiculturalism in departments of Sociology and Ethnic Studies.

 

Racial and Ethnic Relation, 9/e, examines the “what”, “why”, and “how” of racial and ethnic oppression and conflict.

 

Drawing on a broad array of sources, this text provides readers with access to important research and literature on racial and ethnic groups in the Unites States and, to a lesser extent, in certain other countries around the globe.
