Summary

The text that has been very popular among undergraduate students studying race and ethnicity has been updated and revised in this new Fourth Edition! Written in a clear, consistent style, this best-selling text eloquently describes and, at times, serves as a conduit for a broad spectrum of experiences related to race, ethnicity, gender, and class. Author Joseph Healey uses sociological theory to tell the story of race and other socially constructed inequalities in the United States with consistency and clarity.

Key Features and Updates to the Fourth Edition:

  • All new 2-Color scheme
  • All new Chapter 11, "New Americans: Immigration and Assimilation"
  • Provides "Current Debates" at the end of chapters on important issues, expressed through the ideas and writings of prominent scholars
  • Includes "Narrative Portraits" first person accounts that are threaded throughout the text
  • Contains all new "Photo Essays" within most of the chapters that visually reinforce key concepts in a dramatic and memorable fashion
  • Updated Exhibits with 2002 census information
