American Ethnicity : Dynamics and Consequences of Discrimination - 5th edition

American Ethnicity : Dynamics and Consequences of Discrimination (ISBN10: 0073135771; ISBN13: 9780073135779)

ISBN10: 0073135771

Summary: This brief text provides an accessible introduction to the dynamics of racial and ethnic relations. After summarizing key concepts and theories, the authors develop a simple theoretical framework that guides the presentation of data on each of the prominent ethnic groups in America. As a result, the book examines each ethnic group from the same perspective, allowing students to compare the dynamics of discrimination against African Americans, Native Americans, Asian Ame morericans, white ethnic Americans, and Latinos.

New Features

  • All statistics and data tables in each chapter have been updated with the most recent data available from public use data sources such as the U.S. Census Bureau.
  • Chapter 8 on Asian Americans has been expanded to include discussion of the Pacific Islander population.
  • A new Chapter 9 discusses Arab Americans.
  • Added discussions include the increasing significance of ''race'' and ethnicity; the changing ethnic composition of America; abusive practices such as environmental racism and racial profiling; the relationship between poverty rate and discrimination against ethnic populations; residential segregation among various ethnic populations; the problems faced by Native American youth; hate crimes against Arabs and Muslims after September 11, 200l; the struggle for social justice in the twenty-first century; and a summary of the major court decisions relating to affirmative action in higher education.
  • A summary, points of debate, and key terms (with page references) conclude each chapter.
  • An end-of-book glossary has been added, which defines the key terms in the text. less
