Description:

How should we respond to the challenges of diversity? Race, Ethnicity, and Gender: Selected Readings addresses this question and examines how the United States is growing increasingly diverse in terms of ethnicity, race, gender, language, and culture. Editors Joseph F. Healey and Eileen OBrien provide a unique blend of diverse voices, perspectives, and research on a broad range of race, ethnicity, and gender topics.   Derived in part from the Third Edition of Joseph Healeys best-selling text Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Class, this anthology includes expanded and updated versions of the Current Debates, as well as new, additional readings carefully chosen from the research literature. Interweaving first-person experience and controversial topics, this reader reviews racial progress and failure in American society and examines the many cultures that make up society. The book recalls the mass migration to the United States from Europe and includes sections on specific ethnic groups such as African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian Americans.   Race, Ethnicity, and Gender can be used as a stand-alone text or as a companion to Joseph Healeys Diversity & Society and is recommended for undergraduate students studying race and ethnicity, diversity, race relations, ethnic relations, inequality, and gender studies. Race, Ethnicity, and Gender: Selected Readings and its accompanying textbook Diversity and Society: Race, Ethnicity, and Gender are now available at a 15% package discount!
