Summary

This top-selling, comprehensive text on racial and ethnic relations in the U.S. covers theoretical issues and the experiences of more than 50 racial, ethnic, and religious groups.Strangers to these Shoresprovides broad, yet specific coverage of Europeans, Native Americans, African Americans, Hispanics, Arabs, religious minorities, and women as a minority group. This text systematically applies the three main sociological perspectives as a consistent framework for analysis. Also, it introduces "the stranger" concept in an analysis of the stranger as a social phenomena, and the text continues to carry this unifying theme throughout the study of all minority groups. This text provides first-hand immigrant accounts and comparative examples from other countries through "Ethnic Experience" and "International Scene" boxes. The final chapter, "The Ever-Changing U.S. Mosaic," brings synthesis to the many groups represented in the text.
