Literature, Race and Ethnicity is a text-anthology of American literature organized around issues of race and ethnicity. Including writings by both white Americans and ethnic and racial minorities, this text presents a multicultural approach to the ways in which problems of race and ethnicity have been articulated, suffered, voided, or transcended by citizens of racial and ethnic-immigrant minority groups. Providing a broad cross-section of writers from many racial and ethnic communities, Literature, Race, and Ethnicity presents racial and ethnic identities in the context of group struggles for political and economic rights and personal, social, and psychological development. The text goes beyond the celebration of ethnic difference to explore some of the conflicts that have occurred, and still occur, in the United States, around issues of race and ethnicity.
