Introducing#xA0;the core theories, concepts, and issues concerning race and ethnic relations in the United States. #xA0; 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.#xA0; #xA0; Following a presentation of introductory concepts in the first chapter-particularly that of the stranger as a social phenomenon and the concept of the Dillingham Flaw-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 group#x19;s varying expectations about how minorities should #x1C;fit#x1D; into its society.#xA0; 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 dominant#x13;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.
