The third volume in The Society Pages series tackles race, ethnicity, and diversity in contemporary American society. As with our previous volumes, the chapters are organized into three main sections. “Core Contributions” exemplifies how sociologists and other social scientists think about race-related groups and topics—in this case the demographics of race, the construction of group identities, and the social psychology of prejudice and racism. Chapters in the “Cultural Contexts” section engage race and diversity in and through cultural realms—ranging from mass media and sports to the environment—in which powerful racial dimensions are sometimes overlooked. Finally, the “Critical Takes” chapters provide sociological commentary, perspective, and reflections on the problematic structure and future of race relations in the United States.

Douglas Hartmann (Ph.D. University of California, San Diego, 1997) is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Minnesota.nbsp; Much of his research focuses on the intersections of race and sports in American culture. Hartmann is the author of Race, Culture, and the Revolt of the Black Athlete: The 1968 African American Olympic Protests and Their Aftermath (University of Chicago Press, 2003), and is currently working on a project that uses midnight basketball as a case study of sports-based risk prevention in the contemporary United States.nbsp; He is also one of the principle investigators of the "American Mosaic Project," an ongoing, multi-method study of race, religion and diversity funded by the Minneapolis-based Edelstein Family Foundation.

Christopher Uggen is in the sociology department at the University of Minnesota. He studies crime, law, and deviance, especially how former prisoners manage to put their lives back together. He is co-editor of The Society Pages.
