Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0199752109, Paperback)

Featuring a wide range of classic and contemporary selections, Race in an Era of Change: A Reader is an affordable and timely collection of articles on race and ethnicity in the United States today. Opening with coverage of racial formation theory, it goes on to cover "racial thinking" (including the challenging and compelling concept of "whiteness") and the idea of "assigned and claimed" racial identities. The book also discusses the relationships between race and a variety of institutions--including healthcare, economy and work, housing and environment, education, policing and prison, the media, and the family--and concludes with a section on issues of globalization, immigration, and citizenship.

Editors Heather Dalmage and Barbara Katz Rothman have carefully edited the selections so that they will be easily accessible to students. A detailed introduction to each article contains questions designed to help students focus as they begin reading. In addition, each article is followed by a "journaling question" that encourages students to share their responses to the piece. Offering instructors great flexibility for course use--the selections can be used in any combination and in any order--Race in an Era of Change: A Reader is ideal for any undergraduate course on race and ethnicity.
