IntroducingÂ the core theories, concepts, and issues concerning race and ethnic relations in the United States.
Based on the top-selling title by the same author, Strangers to These Shores, this book provides a framework for understanding the interpersonal dynamics and the larger context of changing intergroup relations.Â
Following a presentation of introductory concepts in the first chapterâ€”particularly that of the stranger as a social phenomenon and the concept of the Dillingham Flawâ€”the first group of chapters examines differences in culture, reality perceptions, social class, and power as reasons for intergroup conflict. These chapters also look at the dominant groupâ€™s varying expectations about how minorities should â€œfitâ€ into its society.Â Chapters 2 and 3 include coverage of some middle-range conflict and interactionist theories. Chapters 4 and 5 explore the dimensions and interrelationships of prejudice and discrimination, and Chapter 6 covers the dominantâ€“minority response patterns so common across different groups and time periods. This chapter presents middle-range conflict theories about economic exploitation too. Chapter 7 employs holistic sociological concepts in discussing ethnic consciousness; ethnicity as a social process; current racial and ethnic issues, fears, and reactions; and the various indicators of U.S. diversity in the 21st century.
