Reflecting the latest data and theoretical literature available, RACE AND ETHNIC RELATIONS: AMERICAN AND GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES, 10e tackles diversity issues from both the American and global perspective, offering an in-depth exploration of today's globally diverse world. The text's expansive coverage of race and ethnic relations across the globe highlights major points of difference and similarity between the United States and a number of other societies, as well as includes a unique case study comparing four different countries. This unique comparative approach is vital with the increasing ethnic diversity in most contemporary societies as well as the prominence of ethnic conflicts in virtually all world regions. Current statistics, figures, maps, and citations provide up-to-the-minute insight. The Tenth Edition also includes an all-new chapter devoted to Arab Americans. In addition, end-of-chapter critical-thinking questions encourage students to think in a sociological mode and examine current issues using concepts presented in the text.
- Helping ensure students gain a solid understanding of important concepts, key terms are now featured in bold and include an italicized definition or descriptive sentence within the text.
- Two to three new personal/practical application questions have been added to each chapter, giving students experience applying chapter concepts to real-world scenarios.
- An all-new Chapter 12 focuses on Arab Americans, offering a more detailed analysis of the Arab American community and how it has dealt with anti-Arab and anti-Muslim beliefs and actions in the past decade.
- Numerous tables and figures throughout the text help students readily understand concepts.
- Chapter 8 on Hispanic Americans includes extensive coverage of three major Latino groups-Central American, South American, and Caribbean.
- The final chapter deals with ethnic conflict and change, highlighting several recent and ongoing ethnic conflicts in the contemporary world.
- A power-conflict perspective emphasizes the power dynamics among a society's various groups.
- The text provides excellent worldwide coverage and inclusion of race and ethnic relations across the globe, including a unique comparative case study of South Africa, Brazil, Northern Ireland, and Canada.
- Each chapter in Part III (covering non-American, multi-ethnic societies) is a section concisely describing the major points of difference and similarity between the United States and the particular society covered in that chapter-enabling instructors and students to easily relate materials from these chapters to U.S. ethnic dynamics and issues.
- All statistical material is completely up to date with the latest figures from the U.S. Census Bureau as well as from other data-gathering organizations in the United States and abroad.
- Statistical data is presented in easy to read and understand graphs, charts, and maps.
- All chapters contain new or recent citations, reflecting the continued vast production of empirical and theoretical literature in the field of race and ethnic relations.
- Bulleted summary sections in each chapter provide a clear and comprehensive snapshot of key points.
- Personal application questions at the end of each chapter help students examine current issues and apply concepts presented in the text to their own lives.
- The text's expansive coverage of immigration includes theory, American immigration history, current issues and patterns of immigration as well as insightful discussions of the economic and social impact of current immigration.
