Grounded in a socio-historical perspective with engaging stories and first person accounts.
Racial and ethnic relations in the United States are at a dynamic and exciting time. Major events are shaping our society, such as population and immigration changes, the election of the first African-American president, and increasing diversity throughout our society.
Racial and Ethnic Groups, 12th edition helps students understand the changing dynamics of the U.S. population. By using a socio-historical perspective, the author frames issues by examining our history, exploring the current situation, and discussing the concerns for the future.
Filled with first person accounts, such as â€œListen to Our Voices,â€ brief story chapter openers, and â€œStudent Voicesâ€ questions, Schaeferâ€™s Racial and Ethnic Groups actively engages students in the study of racial and ethnic relations.
Major changes include the introduction of â€œGlobal Viewâ€ boxes, and new discussions of high-interest topics, such as African immigration and color-blind racism.
