Race and Ethnicity in America, Paperback / softback Book

Race and Ethnicity in America Paperback / softback

Part of the Sociology in the Twenty-First Century series

Description

Race and Ethnicity in America examines patterns and trends in racial and ethnic inequality over recent decades.

John Iceland shows how color lines have generally softened over time in the United States but deep-seated inequalities remain-generally, blacks, American Indians, and some Hispanics fare less well than others.

Among these groups, the underlying causes of the disadvantages vary, ranging from the legacy of racism, current discrimination, differences of human capital, the unfolding process of immigrant incorporation, and cultural responses to structural conditions.

Throughout the book, Iceland also demonstrates that the ways Americans define racial and ethnic groups, along with changing patterns of identification in the U.S. population, influence our understanding of patterns and trends in racial and ethnic inequality.
