This text explores race and ethnic relations in a global context, while extensively covering groups and issues in the United States. The text's unique comparative approach is increasingly important and relevant in light of the growing ethnic diversity in a variety of societies as well as the prominence of ethnic conflicts throughout the world. This text offers instructors an opportunity to introduce comparative content in their courses while not sacrificing an American focus.
