Beschreibungen

The study of racial and ethnic relations has become one of the most written about aspects in sociology and sociological research. In both North America and Europe, many "traditional" cultures are feeling threatened by immigrants from Latin America, Africa and Asia. This handbook is a true international collaboration looking at racial and ethnic relations from an academic perspective. It starts from the principle that sociology is at the hub of the human sciences concerned with racial and ethnic relations.
There has been no recent reference book on the sociology of racial and ethnic relations, so this work fills a yawning chasm in the literature. This handbook is a true international collaboration looking at racial and ethnic relations from an academic perspective.

Sociology is at the hub of the human sciences concerned with racial and ethnic relation, with relevant contributions to disciplines ranging from individual psychology, social psychology, and psychiatry, to economics, anthropology, linguistics, cultural studies, health care delivery and education. In this comprehensive handbook, the editors cover the complex issue of racial and ethnic relations from many perspectives. The contributions to this volume cover the effects of racism on society and on the individual, exploring the impact of the sociology of race on health disparities, media coverage, family dynamics, migration, work, globalization, education, violence, as well as solidarity, anti-racism movements, and community interventions. The result is a seminal handbook for the study of the racial and ethnic relations, across the field of sociology. Leading experts in the field explore the major topics of inquiry, as well as provide direction for future research.
