Description

In its two editions, this remarkably succesful text has introduced students to the diverse points of view on race and ethnicity in the U.S. Arranged in debate format, the essays address vital questions such as: How have the experiences of racial minorities in the U.S. been similar to and different from each other? Is "race" the same as "ethnicity"? How has culture shaped race and ethnic relations? As undergraduate programs in the U.S. have become more and more aware of the importance of race, ethnicity, and difference, comparative inquiries like those in From Different Shores have become absolutely essential.
