In the revised and updated second edition of this comprehensive book, the first anthology to integrate social-psychological literature on prejudice with sociological and historical investigations, contributors introduce readers to the key debates and principal writings on racial and ethnic conflict, representing conservative, liberal, and radical positions. Presented in debate format, each section offers a provocative discussion of contemporary problems and issues, allowing students to take part in the controversies from an informed perspective. The editors’ introductions provide current data and describe cutting-edge arguments that are reshaping the study of race and ethnicity today. The second edition boasts new readings which serve to further enhance the dialogue on America’s continuing struggle with racial issues. Contributors tackle a wide array of issues which plague the country today — from discrimination and immigration to education and politics — and ask how we can affect change as we move into the twenty-first century.
Fred L. Pincus is associate professor of sociology at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
Howard J. Ehrlich a sociologist and social psychologist, directs the Prejudice Institute and is the 1994 recipient of the Sociological Practice Award of the Society for Applied Sociology.
