A new ethnic order has emerged in the United States. The growing number of Latinos and Asians has rendered the old black-and-white binary obsolete. And yet, political pundits and commentators on both the left and the right continue to overlook the changing face of discrimination and opportunity in today's new multiethnic, multiracial America. With Color Lines, John David Skrentny brings us a collection of essays that reexamines the role of affirmative action and civil rights in light of this important shift in American demographics. The book explores issues of public policy, equal opportunity, diversity, multiculturalism, pathways to better work and higher learning, and attempts in countries outside the United States to protect minority civil rights. Combining perspectives from specialists in fields as diverse as sociology, history, political science, and law, Color Lines is a balanced and broad-ranging guide for anyone interested in civil rights policy and the future of ethnic relations in America.

Malamud Sunita Parikh John C. Sullivan Thomas J. Sugrue Carol M. Swain Steven M. Teles Roger Waldinger Christine Min Wotipka

John David Skrentny is associate professor of sociology at the University of California, San Diego. He is the author of The Ironies of Affirmative Action: Politics, Culture, and Justice in America, also published by the University of Chicago Press.
