EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Through diversity, America has grown strong as a nation. Although all segments of the population share certain life patterns and basic beliefs, there are many differences in traditional lifestyles and cultures among ethnic groups. Respect for such differences is a benchmark of a democratic nation. Migrants, Immigrants, and Slaves documents the fact that all American ethnic groups have been both the oppressed and the oppressors. The book is written for introductory American history, ethnic studies, and sociology courses. Special attention is given to the immigration patterns and cultural contributions of more than 50 ethnic groups.

Gonzales (sociology, California State U., Hayward) focuses this statistic-filled study on the experiences of America's many peoples, with an additional chapter on the experience of women as a minority group.

Each chapter concludes with a summary and bibliography, making this a handy text for undergraduate teaching. c. Book News Inc.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

"What is race? What is ethnicity? Should we think of them as identities? Can they be effectively individuated? How are they related? How do the relations between them influence pressing issues concerned with social identity, gender, racism, assimilation, exploitation, justice, the law, and public policy? And how are the answers to these questions affected by the Black and Latino experience in the United States"—From the Preface This collection of new essays explores the relation between race and ethnicity and its social and political implications. Although much work has been done on the philosophy of race in the past century in the United States, the concept of ethnicity has only recently awoken the interest of American philosophers, and the relations between race and ethnicity remain largely unexamined. The discussion is divided into two parts dealing, on the one hand, with the nature and the relation between race and ethnicity and, on the other, with the social consequences of the complex relations between them. Part I explores in particular the debated topic of racial and ethnic identities: Does it make sense to speak of racial and ethnic identities, and especially of black and Latino identities? And if it does make sense, how should these identities be conceptualized, and how are they related to gender? Part II examines how race and ethnicity have influenced the lot of some social groups in significant ways: How do racially defined institutions deal with racial assimilation? How do different conceptions of race and ethnicity influence public policy and various forms of racism? How can exploited racial and ethnic groups be effectively recognized? And what is the role of affect in social justice as dispensed by the courts?
