This anthology introduces students to the study of race and ethnicity in the US through 40 articles on major topics and themes: race as a social construction, the diversity of experiences that constitute race and ethnicity, the connection between different racial identities and the social structures of race and ethnicity, how racism works as a belief system, racial inequality in social institutions, how people have contested the dominant racial order, strategies for building a more just multiracial society, and race, class, and gender. Reorganized, this edition has a new section on the historical development of race and racism and 22 new articles on current topics like racism and popular culture, race and education, interracial romantic relationships, Latina immigrant labor, orace-basedo diseases, and the criminalization of immigrants.
